I'd have to start asking why a system built in the last decade would
take any more than a few minutes to POST.  What could the system
possibly be doing that takes that kind of time?  I was extremely
annoyed at the 5 minutes my old dell server would take.  None of my
big iron systems (alpha, or sgi) ever took more than a few minutes to
come up.
