Red Hat 9 Performance
Hi, i hv a Intel P4 2.4 GHz, 256 MB DDR RAM, 533 FSB, but my PC work very slow. This happens with Red Hat Linux 9 only.

Is their any configuration that will boost my Linux.

have you enabled DMA?

in a terminal as root

/sbin/hdparm -d /dev/hda

if this reports it is off (redhat 9 does NOT switch DMA on by default)
then repeat with
/sbin/hdparm -d1 /dev/hda
