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.

Thanks guys for your help. I have an Athlon XP 3200+ Barton on a nForce2 board with 512MB of DDR memory running at 400MHz. I'm using Slack 9.1 and Mozilla. I installed only the nvnet drivers for the integrated nic.
I did some test with burning a cd, watching a divx movie and copping a large file from one partition to another. I found no crawlege... only happens while downloading a big file like a 650MB+ ISO file. I also tried downloading with Konqueror and it also slowed the desktop to the point that the mouse pointer will hesitate to move.
With that hardware cofiguration you should not have any hardware bottlenecks. I lean toward trickykid's idea that some piece of software is being a resource hog. What about the "nvnet drivers for the integrated nic"?
