Bootup delays

nasa95 asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-27

I have a strange problem.  When I boot/reboot my machine I am having some strange delays.  Specifically, there is a 45 second to about a minute delay after the bios has detected my 4 IDE devices.  All devices are detected correctly.  And once I am past this things seem to be working correctly (although a little slower than I would expect).  I have a AMD K6-2 360 running on a Viking 3 motherboard (made by EFA corp).  Any help would be appreciated.
