Very odd.  I've just dug out the DVD and fired it up on a 2.4GHz AMD box.  The 
output was immediate - I'd guess about half a second for the whole display.  
Certainly I only got an impression of it scrolling, I wouldn't have been able 
to read anything.  And remember that this is a Fedora Rawhide (8.90, IIRC) 
with all the de-bugging code still in.  I couldn't try it on the really old 
laptop - at least I did try it, but I had forgotten that it struggles to read 
a DVD, and I don't have a CD version.
