bootup of the thin client

I have a setup of 32 thin clients running off of one Dual Xeon with 4GB 
RAM. I had this running on Feisty, and then I upgraded to Gutsy. 
However, I did not upgrade the thin client to Gutsy, so I had the old 
thin client running. The one problem I had with the thin client from the 
Feisty setup was the boot up cycle was long. It would get stuck for over 
30 seconds on something and all I would see is a blinking cursor. So, I 
bit the bullet and upgraded to a new image (ltsp-build-client).

It works well, but the thin client still hangs for a long time on 
something and all I see is a blinking cursor. Is there any way to see 
what's holding up the boot process on the thin client side? I've used 
bootchart ( before, but the list of 
dependencies is long. Any ideas or suggestions?
