Michigan takes 270 meg after it the files have been converted to 
binary. It is easy to do this on a more powerful machine, then copy 
the binaries to the slower machine. If necessary, I will do it for 
you and send you a zip file.

Also, note that ALL of the major map makers start out with TIGER 
data, then they add to it and enhance it. The census bureau is in the 
middle of a 300 million dollar improvement project. This is required 
because of 9-1-1 location for the entire country.
