Changing from Huge to generic kernel will not make a big difference in boot speed. Changing these kernels will only effect the initial decompression of the kernel. Maybe 2-4 seconds depending on your PC.

Things to speed up boot time -

add noatime to your fstab. The part that says defaults - change that to noatime.

chmod -x non essestial services in /etc/rc.d

edit /etc/rc.d/rc.M to stop some of the gtk updating and ldconfig. NOTE these serve a purpose and are a good idea, but if you're impatient they can save a few more seconds. Make a backup copy first.

Until I become competent enough so I know exactly what I'm doing. I rather not do something stupid and break my system. 20 seconds or so boot time isn't so bad anyway.

You can't fix it until it's broken ... wait it's ... Why fix what isn't broken


Try qemu-kvm, VMware, or VirtualBox, much less devastating to break a virtual machine than a live system.
