Question Accelerating Boot Procedure


I have installed SuSe 9.0 on a laptop, and it takes ages to boot it.
My question: what is the simpliest way to provide two different configurations to boot from grub prompt, in order to not having to load network and hotplug, when no periphery is connected during a session?
I would like to keep the original kernel etc.
Is there a way to override USB/PCMCIA/hotplug and all network stuff, without having to boot only into single user mode? Or are there other ways how I could tweak booting in general?

Cheers, Bodo

There is a way to skip hotplug from Lilo's boot prompt... I dont' know about grub.

Google a bit about this, I read it a few days ago.

I believe, from lilo, it's as simple as
linux nohotplug

cheers! I guess there's some similar option for Grub too

Is there any other way to stop all network services from starting, other than compiling a dedicated kernel or only booting into single user mode?
