crap text is probably the wrong word...
stuff like booting this, kernel this...unpacking that...loading this...cups, sups blah!!
There are some legit reasons why RH might take longer to boot than your Windows machine...but there are some you should be concerned about, too. The fact that you're mentioning this now implies that it booted up faster before or are you just noticing it?
RH 9.1 actually removes those OK boxes and gives you a graphical boot - looks like like the other OSs. No thanks, I prefer the information.
[FWIW, there's _no_ comparison in the speed, especially at bootup, between XP/98 and RH on my machines. Especially XP, which takes an extra minute to stop pounding the hd after I "log in."]
