Yes, it has consistently been slow to load (but I think this can be said for a 
lot of other distros, not a SuSE-specific issue). I haven't had the chance to 
tweak my kernel to remove the unnecessary stuff and I'm sure there are many 
other things one could do to optimize load time. On a positive note, it seems 
that with the later versions they have tried to speed things up a bit. Could 
be my imagination though. ;)

Maybe this could be a topic for a presentation? Shawn did a presentation on 
hacking your kernel last year but I wonder if other people have a few tricks 
up their sleeves.
