if the switch has an IP address and your ip is in its access list
you can use this application to find it

If they are Cisco-switches (or HP) you can use CDP to trace them. Go into one switch and do "show cdp nei det" and you will see all switches connected to that switch. Then traverse your network by repeating this.

I agree. 2 hours isn't particularly bad at all. Loading from uSB does make it quicker though, but not exceptionally so.
