Linux image takes ages to load. Sony Vaio VGN-sz2xrp
I've recently installed Slackware 12.1 on Sony vaio VGN-SZ2XRP.
One of the main problems I found was that it takes ages (around 15-20) seconds to load the linux image after I choose what kernel to load from LILO, to the moment when "BIOS check Successful" message appears.
Just to compare, it takes less than a second on my 6-years-old Fujitsu-siemens amilo d =))
It looks like this check takes a couple seconds less time if I load custom kernel, which is a bit smaller than huge-smp, but still, the loading time is Really long.
Does anybody have any ideas if it is possible to deal with this problem?
