Upgrade to snow leopard. It's only 30$ and the startup time is just over a minute. By the way, windows averages about 4-6 minutes on a fast bootup.

Again, (and I'm starting to sound like a broken record here) RAM doesn't speed up anything. Period.
What will help is a faster HD and trimming out things from your startup folder.
Your new HD is faster so your boot time decreased. The RAM had nothing to do with it.
However, there really isn't any reason to shut down the computer in the first place.
Just put it to sleep when you're not using it.
Then you won't have to worry about boot times.__________________________________________________
