My own tests boot < 1 minute, but I've more than 512mb ram.
I'll dig up the magic boot options to limit amount of memory used by the
kernel, and redo the test.
I can confirm it with 512 MB RAM on EEE PC, now I've upgraded to 2 GB but I
still have old module so I can check it again. I thought that 512 MB RAM is
really low for live CD and such slow laptop but then I realized that I don't
have such problem with F10 live CD (iso to usb). I hope it boots from SD card
in USB reader...
