I always thought this looked a really interesting approach to
improving boot times -
haven't got around to trying it yet so can't vouch for it.
There's also some inrteresting info at
NB - all of tehse approaches look like pretty serious changes - caveat
emptor etc. Also, I imagine one of the drawbacks is that unless
they're part of a distro you're going to have to re-apply all the good
work every time you upgrade the distro.
If you do have any success please share!
