It wouldn't run at all or was it just going painfully slow?
If you are using a liveCD, When you load those it takes a minute to start up and goes alot slower then the system would after you install it to hard drive.
Case in point: When I was getting my last distro, I was worried because after I clicked an Icon on the desktop it took it about 5 minutes to finally initiate and run. However after I sat through the install (That took forever as well) and booted for the first time, I was amazed at the speed difference ... It was almost instantaneousness.
