Humm, I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with that choice. I have an
FC3RC5 install on an old P-II running at 233mhz, and the udev start
in the bootup is the slowest single thing to get started by an order
of magnitude.

Can someone tell me a good reason udev wastes as much time as the post
does checking 383 megs of memory, which is very nearly a minute even
just for udev?

If its to be used, its got to speed itself up, a LOT!.

Cheers, Gene
