Doing a "time make zImage" some while ago on the same computer with
two *really* different hard drive (a SCSI seagate ST31200N on
ncr53c810 and a IDE ATA2 seagate <I DONT REMEMBER WHAT> on a 82371FX
(triton I)) shows me exactly the same elapsed time, on both in the
Dont need to say that nothing else than the kernel compile was running
in both case.
