Whoa...  Maybe it's my server hardware, but I have about 75-80 
concurrent users on my server all day.  Dual 3.2Ghz Xeon, 4GB RAM, GigE, 
/home mounted over second GigE via NFS.  Startup time is actually 6-7 
seconds from clicking the icon to typing in a document (I just vnc'd 
into my server to time it).

What sort of startup time is normal?  Am I blessed?  Does my hardware 
make that much of a difference?  I'm using icewm and XDM so that users 
can't choose to use gnome or kde...
