Linux slopwa file copy takes 30 minutes, Windows takes 2 minutes

"Whenever I want to copy something from my USB disk, it takes "forever" to
finalise. Example, copying the pup_431.sfs file to the hard drive can take
anywhere up to half an hour, literally.

The same process in Windows takes a little more than a couple of minutes,
even if that long.

Is there anything I can configure to speed USB speed transfer.

Both above examples are on the same laptop (IBM T22 with 256Mb RAM). Same
problem no matter which version of puppy I use (ttuuxxx's versions, barry's
4.31, NOP, Stardust, Macpup, etc) "

Interesting. Most of the posts I've run across in the past concerning
transfer times were exactly the opposite - MS taking forever while Linux
was a jackrabbit - I suppose nothing is perfect.
