That's less than 1% of available transfer rate.  Seems like my transfers are slow.  I do better than that when installing via the internet.

Gigabit ethernet from a 2.8 GHz P4 to or from MacPro I am only limited by disk data rate. About 60 MB/sec on one end of the disk, more on the other end of the disk.
