"#7: Avoid dhcp
If you are working on a home network (or a small business network) where address lease isn't a problem, go with static IP addresses. This will keep your machine from having to call out to a dhcp server to get an IP address. If you take this approach, make sure you configure your /etc/resolve.conf to reflect your DNS server addresses as well.

"#8: If you can spare it, get rid of hotplug Hotplug is the system that allows you to plug in new devices and use them immediately. If you know your server won't need this system, delete it. This will cut down on boot time. On many systems, hotplugging consumes much of the boot time. Removing hotplug will vary depending upon the distribution you use. NOTE: udev has, for the most part, replaced hotplug. But if you're running an older distribution, this does apply."
