Close all your programs before installing the game. If the computer is only installing the game and doing nothing else, it shouldn't fall below 100 bps. What is your cd drive speed?
Scan your D drive for errors too and look at the SWBF2 cds for any noticable marks. Is there enough free space on your D drive for SWBF2?
