After applying the method you outlined above
along with replacing exim4 by nullmailer,
the boot time for the Debian 5.0 Lenny system
I use has significantly improved ....
Now from grub to kdm login screen is about
30-35 seconds .... Whoo Hoo !
I think the major bottle-neck here may have been
with exim4 as there has always been a very pregnant pause
just before exim4 showed up in the boot process listing
which has carried over for me through Sarge, Etch, and
now Lenny ....
Thanks very much for the information ....
