    Im 35-40 secs running win ME on celery 433 and 64mb. Yeah, thats not the greatest, but I remote start the whole thing. So even if I am just outside the car and remote boot - by the time I get in, put my seatbelt on, put my sunglasses on, and flip up my LCD (which has too boot up too (Pioneer)) ...its pretty much "good to go" by then.

    My engine has to warm up for atleast 20 secs. So I cant go anywhere till then anyways. Damn big fat toyota engine!

    30 seconds hibernating in Win ME with an AMD K6-2 500mhz and 128MB ram.

    Full boot time is like 70 seconds.

    Full boot in about 25 secs. Just over 20 secs of that is the mobo post though. About 2-3 secs from starting to load DOS to having a menu on the screen.

    22 seconds from powerup.

    Windows 98 (98lite), Duron 800 64MB RAM.

    Windows is really stripped down, since I only have an LCD display there is no video card drivers. Windows boots straight to my mp3car app (using the shell= command). Also I have virtual memory turned OFF, so that windows does not have to worry about setting up the swap file.....

    Project - GAME OVER :(

    magnetik--

    I am planning on using 98lite as well, but I was hoping you could tell me a little about the virtual memory thing. I haven't heard of that before. Thanks
