[LinuxBIOS] Boot Time

I understand one of the biggest merits of LinuxBIOS is fast booting.

Then, how fast it is? The top page of the Wiki says 3 sec, 
and "7/25/01: Dual Athlon update " issue says about 2 sec to
boot a kernel. But this log shows it took 20 sec.
It is too big difference between 2 sec and 20 sec, dont you?

Especially, I would want to know the figures on VIA mini-ITX
mothres with USB memory booting. It is very good that if I could
get /bin/init started within 3 sec or such.
