slow CD upgrade fc 2 -> fc3


I am upgrading from fc2 -> fc3 using the 4 CD set. I am noticing that it's going very slowly (~4.5 hours so far, ~6 hours to go).

Is this because of the number of kernels I have accumulated? During updating, I have been taking on new kernels, and am offered them as options by grub when booting. Does each new package have to be installed for each kernel?

Thanks for your input.

~8.5 hours! For a while there, I thought I was mistakenly installing gentoo!
