Grub to desktop: 37.5 seconds!

I’m bouncing around the house this morning because I finally trimmed the boot time on my 300Mhz laptop to under 40 seconds! :mrgreen:

I deciphered mkinitcpio with the 0.8 installer, and I was able to skim through the hardware detection phase in a fraction of the time. And I found a few more kernel modules that don’t need loading, so that step is shorter too.

I’ll explain more later. For now, I’m too busy patting myself on the back! :D
