do a "ps -ax | less" and print what you see. There are surely a ton of daemons running that you don't need. I know in RH9 there was an applet called "services" in one of the menus in Gnome/KDE that you could go into and point-and-click disable lots of services and stop them from running during boot.

Read the descriptions of each of the services you have running to determine whether you need them or not, like CUPS for printing ---if you have no printer.

Good luck.

What window manager are you using?

Nothing speeds up a system better than Blackbox!

He's right. I haven't used blackbox, but I do find WindowMaker to be pretty lean burning as well. KDE and GNOME are resource hogs on any system....no matter how fast a CPU and RAM are.
