No driver should ever take more than 5 minutes to install, unless you're counting time to download the installer from the internet. If you're installing off of a disk it's possible the drive is having problems reading the disk in which case you could just go online and get newer drivers and install those.

That's not normal... Since you just installed Vista, I'd say cut your losses on time and just try doing it all again, starting with a new install of Vista. 30 minutes for a video drive and now 4+ hours for motherboard is not right.
