Re: d-i slowness on QNAP TS-209

I'm currently installing squeeze on a QNAP TS-209 with two 2 TB disk drives.
The only really major pain is the speed, especially the delays between
various d-i screens. It can take a few minutes for some steps, like entering
the RAID manager, or after configuring a partition. Is there room for
improvement here, or is the machine just that slow?
Okay, well this thread might be of interest:
I actually use a couple of DNS-343 untis from D-Link and my main gripe
is that they don't have enough RAM (or speed generally with a gigabit
network interface). Using funplug on them and my own "date" shell
script that gets the "right" date for my timezone. Interestingly, "at"
works with current [local] date/time properly, but the standard date
executable returns GMT time.
Anyway, I would consider the TS-509 as per the thread or a different
dedicated machine, but for now the dns343's are cutting it, just, for
the tasks they have to do. The other advantage of the TS-509 is that it
uses Intel chipset which works "better" than ARM based architectures
(probably depending on the task) -- I understand, correct me if I am
wrong, that bind9 has "issues" with ARM machines at this time. Intel is
more standard at least.
