Ummm...slow :-).

It's all programmed I/O, so it depends upon the PCMCIA timing and
the capability of the disk.  People I have talked to that use this
configuration were never concerned about the speed, but rather needed
the additional storage space.  It certainly isn't workstation/server
performance :-).
