Though comparing kernel compile times is just as bogus... Specially if
you omit important stuff like if you have SCSI or not, etc....

Just for an example.. I just timed the compile of a 2.0 kernel on
my Pentium 90 and got it done in about 8 minutes... (36.04 Bogo MIPS)

So something MUST be wrong with your Pentium 166 :) :)

(Just as a note, this was without Network, aout support, or any other
file systems but ext2... bootable, but not especially usefull :))
