                    Linux Kernel 2.0.36
                    Custom software
                    Cyrix MediaGX200 - performs like a 486-100, seriously! ;(
                    16MB RAM
                    1.4Gig 2.5" HD
                    Compaq 4X SCSI CDROM

                    Unoptimized boot time: about 1:15
                    When I get around to it, I'll take it out of my car and optimize the kernel and hopefully get it < 1 min.

                      What's Win98 Lite? Does it boot faster than regular Win98?

                        98Lite is a program that will let you custom-install windows such that it will leave out all the crap that you don't need, but retain the capabilities of Win98. Namely, you can remove Internet Explorer entirely, get rid of active desktop, replace the shell with the original Win95 shell, and several other things.. it makes Win989 run faster, although I'm not sure about boot time..

                          From Callahan's specs, it looks pretty fast to boot. Where can you pick it up?

                              Windows NT 4 (SP5)
                              P200
                              32MB SDRAM
                              Winamp 2.5

                              Boot Time: >3min

                              I thought NT would be a good choice because of its stablility. However it takes forever to boot. (Never crashed though!) I think I'll switch to 98lite soon.
