Remount the file system async and and ungzip the .tar.gz on an other
machine. This will speed up things remarkably. If you have a 1.5 kernel
on the machine you can use softupdates instead of an async mount. But
this can be counterproductive on a week equiped machine like a MVII.

I recomend compiling the kernel on the m76. It takes about 15 hours to
compile a (1.4.x) kernel on a MVII.
