Just wondering, how fast (in megahertz) is your P3?
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

VL 6.0 SOHO KDE-Classic on 2.3 Ghz Dual-core AMD with 3 Gigs of RAM

It shouldn't be all that slow.  However, a boost in ram should help a lot. Ram's cheap, particularly at a used computer shop. Also, how big is your swap drive?
