what takes 5 minutes, booting d-i from the cd or the live session?
you're aware that booting live systems from optical medias is pretty
slow due to big seek time of those? also, check that your hardware isn't
the bottleneck (slow cdrom drive, scratched/hardly readable discs, less
than 128mb ram, very slow cpu...).

remove/disable unecessary services from sysvinit and/or use an usb stick
