Does anyone have something better than ReadList.  I have a 300x200
matrix to read in (from disk), and mathematica takes way to long to do it
with ReadList.  
I've thought about writing a MathLink program to do it, but
alas I know Fortran not C.  I expect it would be faster, but I could
be wrong.

Also, am I the only one who can't get Todd Gayley's FastBinaryFiles to
install on Windows NT?  Install["Binary.exe"] just hangs up the kernel.
