Re: Parallel Booting

Speaking on the subject of parallel booting... has anyone tried init-ng? I had it installed in Fedora Core 6 using a P4 Hyper-Threading CPU and it cut my boot time in half. One drawback is that you manually have to set up most of your startup scripts as many services are not setup right out of the box. Maybe this changed in Fedora 7?

Yeah, not very useful it would seem...

What happened to this?


Is it being worked on? (Yeah, I know - I should probably not ask questions, but
submit patches :-)

Isn't that the trick used on Windaz boxes as well?
