[ubuntu-uk] copying 34gig to a FAT32 external hard drive -- 3 hours?

Surely that can't be right?
I'm running Jaunty on a Macbook 3,1 w/ 2gig RAM -- hardly the most recent
machine, but still!
This isn't a one-off, though -- copying to this drive is always slow
(currently 3.2 MB/Sec).
Is there something I'm not doing right?
Something I should set or unset?
Should I reformat the drive? It's fine under OSX. I wanted FAT32 so that I
could use any OS to access it.
