    Well, to answer myself, just found that Lifehacker came through for me and has a quick writeup

    Presto Loads a Streamlined Desktop in 15 Seconds

    Looks pretty good, and I'm probably going to try it out on my old rig. I really like the idea of having something I could boot that quick if I forgot to check something and am on the way out the door, or my Vista OS crashes, and I could get into the files to back things up real quick before a reinstall.

      I might try this out on my EEE now that I don't use it for anything more serious than web surfing. I love Ubuntu and all but it takes forever to boot!

        Oooh...15 seconds. That's a little faster than Linpus Lite. I might throw this onto my AA1 if I don't manage to sell it.

          My mini9 boots to full xp in 21... including the 7 seconds before it posts. why is 15 secs a big deal?

            My XP, which is still a pretty fresh install on my old computer, boots in about 2 mins.
            15 sec is a huge thing for mine, but your right, this isn't for everyone's setup

              Oh wait...the final full version is going to cost $20. Guess I will try out Linpus Lite first then.
