I've had the same problem on Ubuntu 8.10. When my laptop didn't have a LAN
connection, it would easily take 30 seconds to get past the network config.
I checked /etc/network/interfaces and removed the lines
iface eth0 inet dhcp
because I have WICD manage my network connections.
So I figure the cause of the delay is the DHCP client not getting a
response and waiting for the timeout period.
