If it takes that long to boot minimyth, you're doing something wrong. I'm 
running a 1GHz LN10000EG board and it goes from button-press to first menu in 35 
seconds. I'm using a standard TFTP and DHCP setup, although the server which 
runs these isn't a myth server. I have a 100Mhz ethernet network.
