I am wondering if my Gentoo boot time is slow, average or fast.

On average, it takes me about 30 seconds to boot upon power-up, before I hit the command prompt. I "rolled my own" kernel and didn't have many options other than than what was needed to run my system installed.

During the boot process, the screen goes dark and just a flashing cursor remains at the bottom of the screen. This lasts for about 20 seconds and is by-far the most time consuming portion of the boot process.

The boot text scrolls by so fast that I can't read what's going on, but I have noticed:
1. it complains about still using /etc/dnsdomainnae instead of /etc/conf.d/domainname

My system's (laptop) stats:

AMD Athlon 64 3200
SiS 755 chipset
1 GB RAM
80 GB HD
ATI Radeon Mobility 9700, 128 MB

So, what is your computer's boot process like?

Thanks,
Corvusnex
