On same laptop, window XP Professional with DHCP boots in 46 secs. To
install and boot in MSWINXP I had to disable SATA native support.
Now I have enabled for boot of Linux, but boot time is same.
Since MSwindow boot normally, so I assume H/W is fine.
Normal working is also slow. Firefox, OO windows dimmed too frequenty
and I have to wait to get response. Most of time HDD's activities make
be believe that I am working on PC-XT m/c.
First time felt is while upgrading Ubuntu (otherwise I believed
moderen application may be heavier for my laptop)
It took 8 hours after downloading of packages.
Now load average for 1, 5, 15 minutes is 3.72, 4.11, 3.28

It is installed. But It is there with default setting, as I was not aware of it.
