Hi Peter,
Don't have WinNT or 2K. - The online speed rapport of 
WebsiteOptimization.com tells: 81.48 seconds loading time on a 56kbps 
modem ...
See over here 
<http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/wso.php?url=http://www.baywerks.net/bayonetags/tag50118.20060223/B150118nucleationstudy.html>.
But there is light in the tunnel:
1. The images can be lossless compressed, see testpage over here 
<http://home.tiscali.nl/developerscorner/css-discuss/test-compressing-jpg.htm>.
2. Then combining the images, and putting them as background-images on 
the page (with different background-positions) can save some 
http-requests and gets rid of empty spaces in the tcp/ip-packets coming 
down: also contributions to speed 'm up.
3. In the (normally spoken) visited page just before this one, you can 
preload (a part of) the images by placing them just before the end of 
the </body>, as hidden images (a <div> with {margin-left: -9999px}). 
While the visitor is reading (we hope), the images are silently 
downloaded. Then the images of the next page, anyway the top images, are 
already in the cache and don't ask downloading time after opening the page.

btw: should put the Nav-bar just under the header (the common place 
people are looking for the menu, not after scrolling).

Greetongs,
francky
