Wellm how far does it need to boot before you can run the ogg player?
I'll bet you can move the init script for the player to run as
/etc/rc2.d/S01whatever and shave off a few seconds. I do this with xdm
on laptops as well. The rest of the boot can happen after the important
stuff starts up. If you're feeling really antsy you could put it in
/etc/rcS.d/S36, so it runs right after all disks are mounted.
