46s is still far too slow

With BeOS, from the moment the BIOS initialisation finish to a usable graphical desktop, it took under 20s (more like 14s if memory serves) on a Celeron333 with 128MB of RAM.
To have the equivalent under Linux, you would have to measure: kernel boot + KDE or Gnome startup with auto-login.
If I'm not mistaken 46s only take into account the kernel boot time on a 1.5GHz PentiumM!
This may be be partly caused by a slow disk (the PentiumM makes me think that it is a portable which have usually slow disks), but still this is very slow..
