How to improve your Ubuntu Lucid Lynx boot speed

Yes, even with a faster boot speed in the new Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 people are finding new methods to further speed it up! :) I tried the following tip and it does prove to speed up Lucid.

Its a very simple tip and uses profiling i.e use a profile during boot. OK let me brief the method in 4 simple steps.

1. Open console/terminal. First you have to open the grub file. You do it by     typing.
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Enter the password  and proceed to open the file.

2. You will find the some commands like these.

    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" vga=792"

 In the 6th line i.e GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" add profile.
 So it will become GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash profile"
 In some cases splash might not be there. Just make it "quite profile". Save and close.

3. After that come back to back to your terminal and execute a grub update. Then reboot system.

sudo update-grub2
sudo reboot

4. Now again goto the grub file and remove the profile keyword which you had inserted previously.
    Update your grub using the above command and reboot.
