FC4 Boot Time - Very Long

I have a AMD64 HP laptop zv5000v with FC4. The laptop during boot gets stuck @ " Initializing hardware....network storage audio" for a long time ( about 5 min).
Is there any fix to this problem ?

Have the same problem (ZV5466cl), but it only hangs for about a minute or so. I suspect the boot process is having trouble resolving the card reader, but I haven't dug into it yet...

I have the same problem, but it only happens when I've got a USB device plugged in. Still, its a major pain in the nose.

Hmmm... I hadn't considered USB devices! I've had a USB floppy AND a USB mouse plugged in all this time; I'll try unplugging them to see what happens.

Ok...taking out the mouse before booting helps a great deal. Infact....you should take out
all the peripherals attached to the machine. Boot time is now about 2-3 min.

Yes, but is there a way to get around this problem without yanking out my soundcard, mouse, and USB hard drive every time I boot the computer?

I have a USB mouse, HD, flash key, UPS, and other stuff plugged in with no problems. :/ Surely it's something else...

Yep, USB devices! Specifically, my USB floppy drive... unplugged the drive and mouse, and no delays; plugged the mouse back in and rebooted, no delays; plugged the drive back in and rebooted, about a 1 minute delay. Now if we can find out why, since I run a Logitech Cordless Desktop that uses USB on my desktop computer with no problems (FC_4 32-bit version).

I have a similar problem.
My network card is not connected to any network or modem.
On startup it takes a while for it to fail it.
Is there anyway of temporary disabling it?
Also i'd like to disable the bluetooth and pcmcia services.

Thanks in advance.

FC 4

Desktop--> System settings--> Server settings--> Services
Enter the root password
Uncheck the services you do NOT want to run then click Stop at the top. When you're done click Save at the top. The next time you boot, these services will not start up again.
