Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix Great: But Boot Time is Nothing to Write Home About

I’m really enjoying using Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix (UNR) on my Acer Aspire One netbook (512MB system RAM, 8GB Solid State Drive). However, its boot time is not very impressive. Linpus Linux Lite (which came with the Aspire One) boots in under 20 seconds. UNR took a bit over 36 seconds just to get to the login screen. It takes another 20 seconds after login to see the graphical interface.
