Re: [K12OSN] Intolerable Boot Times here, too

Having the network patch cord plugged in all the way certainly helped.

There is still a HUGE difference between 3.0 and 2.1.2. It was much
faster. I'll be interested to see if we can figure this one out. The
problem is only the booting. The clients are all still running fast once
they boot.
