On my new box (AMD 64 - 3500 w/1 gig) the base system was ready in about 4 
hours, but I wasn't just sitting and waiting, so I'm not sure how long I 
waited between completing each stage.  Kernel compiles take a few minuites.  
Certainly less than 5.

KDE took quite a while.  Perhaps 15 or 20 hours?  It ran all day that I was at 
work, and was done before I arrived the next day.

OTOH, I had a P-200 laptop with 32 megs RAM, and each stage took about 36 
hours.  I didn't bother trying KDE.
