All bootcfg does (at least while running, using DOS) is show you what your options as you pick in msconfig.

Sorry I meant Bootvis.. I got the folder named bootcfg. Basicly all you do is load it and then go to trace and optimize. You can also test it to see how fast windows is loading. And I believe it only works with xp. I could be wrong though as I have only used it in xp. Below is a link for it.

Sorry about the confusion.

Defrag your boot sector, and then change your boot priorities (i.e. change it so the hard drive is checked first) These are to just name a few ways of making it even faster.
