Have you checked that you don't have some kind of hardware problem that is causing this? eg have you tested your memory? Mac's boot insanely fast though - I recently did a little test on this and found that my brand new Vista machine (dual-core, 4 GB memory etc) boots from pressing the power button to having a full desktop in exactly the same amount of time (40 seconds) as my 9-year-old Power Mac running OS X Tiger :P

I don't think so. All I remember was when my hard drive died on me (the 40 GB), I had to bring back the original manufacturer 5GB drive to use the computer again. Ever since then, the loading times are slower, and again, the RAM reads 2 MB less than what is really installed. It never did that with the 40GB drive and everything was great with that. But everytime I use the drive, it screws up everything.

Regardless, it's old. Need to upgrade.

Maybe try a new drive, I noticed a big speed increase when I changed the old drive in my Mac for a new 7,200 RPM one (and the G4 CPU seemed to reduce boot time too, probably Tiger is optimised for AltiVec).
