I have serenpiditously made a similar conclusion running Vista on a 1.8GHz Thinkpad with 2GB RAM. Booting is simply slow -- either warm or cold. Yes, once authentication has completed, the switch to the desktop is relatively quick, but after that there is a noticable wait before I have real control. There appears to be significant system checking going on watching Task Manager & listening to the hard drive, but I haven't taken the time to further ferret out the fundamental cause. Yes, it is annoying, but not enough so that I have been motivated to do anything else about it.
