Thanks, yeah that has done the trick (and made usplash work too).
Shouldn't the package do that automatically?

Anyhow, now for some results.

To be honest I am actually quite pleased with boot times (45 seconds is
fine for me, and since suspend to ram works too...), the only thing that
really constitutes a problem is the fact that the network ifup service
stops for ages while I am not within range of my home network (for
example if I move to the office) and this then leads to the ntpdate
service losing lots of time too. I use profiles in network-admin, but of
course this doesn't help on boot.

On Windows, one of the reasons it is quicker at booting is (I think)
that it doesn't hang around waiting for the network services to start
up. Then again, it takes a hell of a lot longer to log in on Windows
than to log into Gnome. :)

No idea if this feedback is useful or not, but anyhow, I'll keep posting
newer boot chart images at that address (or upload them somewhere else
if this is helpful?).

Thanks, Matt
