In this chapter, we looked at streamlining your installation of SUSE Linux. This involved speeding up the boot procedure by decreasing the boot menu delay and deactivating various unnecessary services that get loaded at boot time. We also looked at optimizing your hard disk settings to allow for greater efficiency in loading and saving files.

Additionally, we investigated prelinking programs so that they load faster, recompiling the kernel so that it's optimized for your system, freeing disk space by various means, and adding a second hard disk.

In the next chapter, you'll learn how to perform backups to safeguard your data.
