That is strange....

Do you have any servers or logging services turned on?

By default - Red Hat 9 has alot of services running in the background - to check what is set to start in your run level do:

su - (su with a space then a dash)
root password

chkconfig --list | grep 5:on

(for run level 5 - if you want to check another run level, replace the 5 with the corresponding number)

To stop a service do:

chkconfig crond off

(for example - change crond to whatever service you want to stop)

Recompiling is a good idea, KDE is better than GNOME but..............a little slower.
