How long should a diagnostics test take?

I am running a diagnostics test on a Dell 4100 Dimension desktop (CTRL-ALT-D during setup). This is the first time I've done this. Right now, the screen is black and has the following text:
"IDE Drive Diagnostics running, please wait...
How long does it take to completet this test (a matter of minutes, an hour or so, etc.)? If nothing else happens after X minutes, is there a problem?
