Even 2 minutes is too long. 30 seconds or thereabouts is just about accectable.

You can look upon most websites as "Flat File Databases". If you have your site split over numerous pages with access to each from one relatively small page you will find that,
1)Pages load faster and you will be doing the WWW a service by keeping data traffic down.
2)Browsing will be easier as we have become accoustomed to browsing through conveniently sized pages instead of one long scroll.
3)Site maintenance is easier. Updates and and changes can be done one page at a time and without having to take most of your site down.
4)Finding data will be easier like looking up chapters or an index in a book.
5)As frames are becoming more and more accessable as web users update their browsers you could, for example, have all of your navigation tools conveniently across the top of the screen. This would keep your maintenance levels to a minimum and reduce the bandwith which visitors to your use.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the business to comment or advise about asksam software but you won't go very far wrong talking to the DT and Mudcat people. They have done a great job.
