I am looking at speeding up boot time slightly (1min from grub to desktop) and noticed the following messages during boot
[ 2.007354] EISA: Probing bus 0 at eisa.0
[ 2.007368] Cannot allocate resource for EISA slot 1

[ 27.560142] AC'97 1 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer.
[ 27.560207] ali mixer 1 creating error.
Is there anything I can do to fix or skip these steps? Also If you have any suggestions on how to speed up boot I would like to hear them.
Mint is installed on an old Compaq Presario 2100, suspend doesn't work so I have to boot and power off every time I use it. So 1min can be an eternity sometime.
For reference on the same machine a HDD puppy install boot in 30 sec, Arch with XFCE in 45sec and Opensuse in 1min and 50sec.
If I could get mint to boot in 50 sec, I would be happy with that.
I tried to uninstall bluetooth but the bluetooth-applet process is still present.
