    Just curious, on my PC it took a while to install the game, but I swear on my PB 1.3Ghz w/768mb is taking like over 10mins per disk. Is that correct? Which it maybe is considering the drive is a 4200rpm.

    I think after the updates, it took over an hour to install.

    Did you change the title after I posted? I don't think I remember this being part of the title before.

    If it was, sorry for my blindness... ;)

    It was a pretty slow install, certainly.. and I installed it using a DVR-108. It's worth the wait :)

    My Mac installed the game faster than my PC. and my PC has a faster drive in it too. Perhaps that's got something to do with the RAID tho.

    The game is just very big, and VERY compressed. I've heard of it taking 2 hours on slower computers with slow cd drives.

    One could mistake "wow" as a sense of shock. Otherwise, it would be proper to type WoW.
