OT: Effective Speed of 10BaseT

I'm wondering what the effective speed of 10Mbit Ethernet is. I've got a
DEC 3000/300LX that just isn't giveing me the kind of Xfer rates I expect,
and I'm wondering/suspecting there is a problem with my calculations.
Using a pair of PDF's totalling 24.6MB as my test I'm getting 8.34MB/Min,
yet I'd expect it to be closer to 72MB/Min.

The machine on the other end is a G4/450 PowerMac with 100BaseT, plugged
into a 10/100Mbit switch, the DEC3000 is plugged into a 10/100Mbit hub
which in turn is connected to the switch.

Of course part of this could be the 21064/125 processor, and part of it
could be the fact I'm using Appletalk.
