    closer than u think..
    goto run>services.msc, disable any unwanted services
    zone alarm & other virus scanners/firewall can increase boot time. disable them using msconfig or goto their options(preferences,... watever) and uncheck Run at Windows Startup

    sp2 boots more slowly than xp with sp1, bcoz of all windows security features.
    if u want to boot super-fast add more RAM. > 512 will definitely help

    You can use 'Startup Control Panel' a freeware to modify your startup programmes so that Ur machine boots faster.The link for the software is :
