For some reason it now takes about 40seconds for the apple logo to even appear when I boot my mac. It used to appear instantly. Why!

Try opening up System Preferences and making sure the starup disk is set to Mac OS X 10.4
This happened to me after I installed Windows.
I did this after I uninstalled BootCamp and it fixed it, but now the issue is back and its worse than before.

I used to have the same problem on my new blackbook when i installed bootcamp and winXP.
Booting my mac while holding command+alt+p+r seemed to work for me.
