Member since:

It's even worse than that since udev came along. This will only give you an idea of how fast Linux initializes hardware and will not give you a system you can really use. Combined with a benchmark of your real boot it will give you an idea which parts are due to Linux and which are your init system and services (just subtract).

Another useful technique: install a minimal system, such as debian-netinst, and uninstall all daemons that are not actually essential. This still involves some benchmarking of init and so forth but will give you a usable system (albeit with nothing much running).
