How long in total did it take you to install?

I guess with the machine I have, total build time would be less than
a day, but to find all that time between work, wife and everything
else, it's taken about 4 months! I'm now looking forward to building
the software I need to create my web and mail server.

It's so much easier to find your way around your own system rather
than some bloated Linux distribution.
