Ok, how fast does your Mandrake system boot?

sounds like a new poll question (for the curious)

my win2k, win98 and winxp on both the laptop and the newer 1.6 GHz pentium compaq will take anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes with the home version of xp in the lead and 2k on the laptop taking forever....

in comparison to the 20 to 40 seconds for Linux on each machine, it's a pretty clear difference...

Since I'm running an ancient 120mhz machine with 32mb of RAM, approximately 3 and a half minutes.

fsck & ext3

does anyone know if fsck is good for ext3 ?

it looks a bit dangerous, i want it to check and see if it can automatically fix the size descrepancy i've been having ever since i resized the partition....

anyone out there have an idea on how to correct this of if fsck is the right tool, if if using it hap-hazardly is a bad idea...
