Do you have it (the net4511) configured as the Notes/Bugs/Caveats page
(http://www.m0n0.ch/wall/notes.php)? I still think PCIBios probing and
PXEBoot could affect the boot cycle.

I don't think you will make the 20 second mark with embedded hardware.
Someone correct me if I am wrong. I have net4501 running here (get
around 40-45 sec boot) - I don't know anything about WRAP...
