Btw, it really did the trick, on my old laptop with 512Mb RAM running Ubuntu it knocked off about 15sec of boot time. I can tell you Helena is booting way too slow on this laptop (I don't know why), that's why I'm asking (actually, I /was/ asking, because I upgraded Helena with this repo and "she's" OK).
A) Dist-upgrade is a stupid way to upgrade existing packages?! Why?
B) Ubuntu Boot Team PPA on launchpad isn't wrong repo at all.
