Hm, well then I guess there is nothing to be done about this delay?
Is grub2 any faster than grub loading the initrd?
Using lilo and booting from disk avoids initrd all together.
My kernel finishes mounting the file systems and going to
the rc3 scripts in ...

AFter initial boot, about 15 seconds later
I have login via console or net.

Of that 15, about 7-8 seconds is cifs timing out because my workstations
no longer mount after the switch to smb2 -- which I still haven't figured

so the game a whack-a-mole continues...

It really doesn't have to be all one way...

On my installation 12.3 RC2 boots VERY quickly and, after I type in my password, I get to the desktop screen within seconds.

BUT, but, it takes *forever* (?15 seconds) to get the Mixer, knemo, clipboard tool, and the HPLIP Status Service widgets to appear on the taskbar; the rest of the taskbar is populated as soon as the desktop appears following typing in the password.
