Fastest booting desktop linux distro? [closed]

I'm currently running Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop and I'm very happy with it. But boot times aren't great... So I'd like to have a second distribution on my hard disc that I can boot to quickly check my email and stuff like that. It really only needs to run firefox and a terminal. Ext4 support would be a plus since my Ubuntu partition is ext4. In the next couple of hours I will try xPUD and DSL. Any other suggestions?

"PuppyLinux, xPUD and DSL should be fast.
Ext4 support needs to be checked though.
Also consider things like XFCE.

PuppyLinux 4.3 has ext4 support"
