Long Render Times

I am doing a project for a book publisher and did a trial time yesterday only to find out that Vue's render speed is totally unacceptable. I started the rendering at 9:30 p.m. on 8-10-2005 and it was only 15% done the next day at 7:00 a.m. Granted it is a very large rendering, a full spread of 17.0" X 11" at 300 dpi. The preset used was "Superior". Remember this is going in a Text book and must look top notch. My question is how can I speed this time up and not loose quality? Being only 15% done Vue estimated another 60 HOURS to finish it. That's way to long! I am running it on a dual 2.7 gig G5 with 2.5 gigs of ram. I need help fast. If you can just give me the settings to speed this up that would be great. I don't have the time to e-mail back and fourth. I do have access to another G5 machine with the same spec's, would the render cow help or can that only be used for animation?Thanks........

Unfortunately, I don't have any real answers for you, but I DO have to
wonder about having it set to Superior, since when it actually will get printed,
I dought anyone would ever even notice the difference between that
and Broadcast at the same rez of 300.
And I'm being serious here too.
What I mean is, it'll end up being shrunk down when it's printed.
And I dought anyone is really going to see the difference in any details once printed.

It really won't be shrunk down by much. There's only a.250" bleed around it. Does broadcast also anti alias the textures?
