Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You could try building your own custom compiled kernel. There are some performance enhancing features that may or maynot be enabled in the FC2 standard kernels. At the same time you can compile certain modules directly into the kernel. And at the same time remove things that you know your computer can't do or won't support.

could u please specify the performance enhancing options u r talking about
More accurately, it's the performance-reducing options that are turned on. To maintain as much compatibility as possible, the standard kernels have most everything turned on. Most of that is unnecessary for most people and just bogs down the system (like FPU emulation, etc.). To make it simple, copy the config file for your current kernel into /usr/src/linux, and then just modify what comes up. For example, set the CPU model to yours (optimization), and then disable lots of the...um...crap.
