The boot screen is somewhat secondary to the main target of decreasing

Well, on my netbook it has been spectacularly unsuccessful. The boot time is horrifically long. It seems that it first tries to bring up my wireless connection, failing miserably, then it tries to mount my 3 defined nfs mounts. Two of them are always available, one is not always. Instead of a reasonably short wait time, then moving on, it seems to wait a very long time. If anyone's interested I'll time it. Failing gracefully is something it needs to learn.

By design NFS should wait for success (you may not have anything else...). If failure is expected or acceptable, you need to specify bg,soft for the mount - or better yet use the automounter so you don't even consider mounting until the need arises.
