Xubuntu takes several minutes to boot up


I have installed Xubuntu(Breezy) on to my Compaq Armada 4210T, it has a Pentium-MMX 233 processor and 64mb ram. Once it boots up it works very well, but it takes no less than 5 minutes to boot. It spends quite a bit of time looking at acpi modules thermal and fan, then comes up with with a failure message. I have included acpi=off in the boot line, but it still checks for them. So how do I get it not to look for them since they are not there.

It also takes along time load the modules, so I was wondering how to remove the unneeded modules so it does take so long loading them up. Part of this would be figuring out which are the uneeded modules.

One last question, not related to boot up, when I shutdown or restart the computer it freezes. When it freezes the last line on the screen is something like, the system is down. The keyboard is completely locked up at this point, and the power button wont work, I have to unplug it and pull out the battery. Any ideas what would cause this.

Thanks for your help.

You can add the names of the modules which u don't want to load on startup to the this file
Code:
/etc/hotplug/blacklist
And / Or
You can remove some unwanted services from the start up by using this command
Code:
sudo update-rc.d -f servicename remove

It's not getting freezed. It's getting shut down normally, except from the poweroff. Maybe the hardware is not supported for automatic poweroff.
Just press the power button (which u use to start ur laptop) for 5 seconds and it will shut down. There must be some settings which will allow u to shut it down completely.
