    Is it safe to choose the bios boot order as :First -hard disk ,second dvd writer.Because this time it takes only 19 sec to boot but the other way (dvd first) it takes 26 seconds.

    Unless I am installing something, I only select hdd as my boot device and leave out everything else, this gives me the fastest boot.

    Just remember to change it back again when you need to boot from live CD or rescue CD.

    Ha ha Ubuntu's boot speed spoils us all and makes us impatient, I installed Fedora 13 which is no slouch and yet found it lacking in term of boot speed as I am so used to Lucid's rapid boot and lightning shut down.

    I usually boot up nearly 5 times a day.I do not leave computer to hibernate because electricity could be cut off anytime.So I wake up check the mails.Prepare lunch or bake the cake and check the news...etc;)

    Now I have to learn the rescue cd.Where can I download it?:D

    I do it this way https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=271824 and it works very well for me, so no harm in trying.

    Edit: For system backup image I use Remastersys, quick and easy, and once again, it works for me. Should it for some reason
    not work for you try CloneZilla.
