Archlinux faster boot

one great thing about archlinux is the rc.conf which simplify services configuration a lot.

instead of messing with lots lots of rc.X files, you only need to configure one single file for all bootup process.

also, this way, you have full control which services should startup first and which services can start later.

i move kdm service to start earlier so that i can have X starts while other services starts in background.
this is how i arrange the services/daemons:
DAEMONS=(syslog-ng @network hal wicd kdm netfs crond laptop-mode compcache)

or, you could also put a lot of @ in front of each service so it starts in background, as more Arch user use like this:
DAEMONS=(syslog-ng @network hal wicd @netfs @crond @laptop-mode @compcache kdm)

how is yours arranged?
