This computer has 2.5 gigs ram. I noticed now also that when you turn it on, you get a black screen for awhile, then it went to an intel splash screen for a long time.
I fiddled with the bios settings more, now it goes to a regular post boot screen instead of the intel splash. There was a setting to skip some tests and I tried that, but it did nothing for the problem.
I mean, it takes LOOONG but eventually starts so maybe its not such a problem. If this was a windows machine forget it, but I am rarely rebooting with vector so I think its cool.
I may try and upgrade to a quad core soon anyway.
