Can we reduce port activation time (between PC and switch) on a 4006?

We have recently moved from a non-switched environment to a Cisco 4006. Boot-up times using DHCP seem to have increased significantly with users.

We have auto-negotiation turned off, with all 10M half-duplex, until we upgrade our cable plant to Cat-5. What is the (short) explanation for the longer port activation time with the switch? Can we configure for less?
