It is brobably doing a dhcp query at boot. It may take some time; especially it takes some time if there is no dhcp server which answers. Btw how much is very slow? I'm talking about 10 seconds max.

It is, yes.
Is your computer connected to network, does the network work correctly?

I think network setting is OK because i can use mozilla to chat here,and use evolution e-mail well.
by the way , i restart my computer just now ,and i found
it stay at "bring up interface eth0: _" about 1 minute, not 20 seconds i think.
what's wrong with my system?
