Need help speeding up my boot


What can I do to speed up my boot? It takes way to long, almost a minute, and it's a modern machine :/

Disable any un-necessary services - for Slackware:

cd into /etc/rc.d first then do (for example)

chmod a-x rc.samba
chmod a-x rc.sendmail

etc, etc - obviously check out what you need etc first.
