I can repeat the installation, and log start
and finish times.  I can certainly say that
compared to installing from DVD, it is
significantly faster (I think the total of
two hours is less than the typical DVD
installation time, never mind just the
installation phase).  I've never tried
to install from a mounted ISO.
