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.

there are so many issues to work on but for some reason every rehdat or clone i have ever tried has run horribly....
you really have to get the smaller more optimized kernel compiled
trim everything useless out of the config
you have to edit the Makefile and add -O3 -march=athlon
your choices are
AMD Athlon CPU with MMX, 3dNOW!, enhanced 3dNOW! and SSE prefetch instructions support.
athlon-4, athlon-xp, athlon-mp
Improved AMD Athlon CPU with MMX, 3dNOW!, enhanced 3dNOW! and full SSE instruction set support.
k8, opteron, athlon64, athlon-fx
AMD K8 core based CPUs with x86-64 instruction set support. (This supersets MMX, SSE, SSE2, 3dNOW!, enhanced 3dNOW! and 64-bit instruction set extensions.)
whatever you have there
put these flags in the kernel Makefile variable
next cut out all the cruft from the run level boot so you are not running services like crond and http and ftpd and whatnot you don't want or need (look up all the services you are running and decide if you need them) test by killing them off and see if everything still works
next you can play with your video bus latency settings
and you find the name on left for your components (something like 01:00.0)
setpci -v -s <video device name> latency_timer=ff
this sets video burst size to max
you can also set the main bridge to like latency_timer=b0
or something and see if it helps
