 Boot faster with parallel starting services

While I suspect that switching to cinint is something that most users are going to wait for their distribution to do, it is an interesting utility.

"To avoid this potential problem, you need to modify the script so that it checks that any dependencies have been met before a service is fired off. You can simplify this process by installing cinit, a program designed to enable parallel booting of processes and handle application dependencies. However, cinit is not for the fainthearted or newbies. You can't simply swap from init to cinit -- you really need to know what you're doing. That said, if you do know what you're doing, then cinit can be a big help."
