Start up time

How does it come that the computer takes such a long time when starting up. I get to see a whole bunch of code lines before i can login. Is there a way to stop this ? eg. to save the settings somewhere so that it will read from memory next time ?

The more services you have configured to run at start up the longer it takes to boot. Simply shut down the services you don't want running using 'chkconfig'.

There are processes that must be run at every startup(i.e. mounting filesystems, enabling swap space, etc.) that MUST start in order for the OS to work.
