...and a 100-mile radius is a pretty darn large file. I find a 20-mile 
radius very slow to load.

  Just for confirmation; did you import the file you got from the net? To
import a file you have to store it int the importexport filder under the
loadstone folder and then run import from the LS file menu and select the
file you have just store in the importexport folder. Import takes some
time from few seconds to few hours depending on the size of the file to be
imported.  You get notified about the progress of the import function

You can still escape from the Gates of hell: Use Linux!
