    I would suggest to use initng which is in review for extras now [1].

First off I am sure you have a valid point. But I personally thing that booting has gotten faster from FC4 to FC5, and I know that I have a lot of services starting up. But with me, I do not boot that often, and when I do, i generally walk away (except for when I am busy, or botting the first few times).

But tell me, what makes fast booting important to you? I ask because I often wonder if people really need fast booting or something else? I believe some are just over impatient, no idea if that in any way applies to you.


As a boy I jumped through Windows, as a man I play with Penguins.
I shutdown my box when I stop working on it, leaving it on is a waste of power (an money). When I boot it again (sometimes for simple tasks like prinitng a file). Its anoying to wait ages before I can do my work, for longer work it does not really matter, but booting faster would'nt hurt. Same is for laptop users, they want to open their laptops and start working... without waiting some minutes before they can start working.
You can say just suspend your boxes...
The problem is that it does not work on all hardware (for me after suspend network is dead, #187653)
FC4 would have booted faster for you if you had enabled early-login.[1]
[1]: if you don't have any nfs mounted dirs.
