Post How to boot fast?


I just saw a machine named eeePC that
boots very fast, which has its eee linux.

However, when I use Damn Small Linux in a USB,
it didn't boot very fast.

It was spending time to initialize and
search for devices everytime I boot.

Why do they have difference like that?
How eee PC can reduce the time in booting?

I am very curious,
could anyone explain about it?

Using a flash based hard-drive and an optimised and specific kernel recompiled for your platform with minimal drivers installed, remove any unnecessary services from startup .

Turn off hardware detection, don't load any excess modules.. prelink your startup executables.. there is more, I just can't think of them.
