A quick fix to make the boot scripts run faster is to change your
/bin/sh to some other shell that is faster than /bin/bash, such as
/bin/dash. This can be done by installing 'dash' and answering the
debconf questions, or by later running 'dpkg-reconfigure dash'.
Be warned that using dash as /bin/sh is a really good way of finding
buggy shell scripts that contain bashisms.
