One thing to check out would be the DMA settings for your Hard Drive.

As you haven't supplied any details of Disto, hardware, etc we can't go any deeper than that.

What distribution are you using? Some distributions are
known to be faster - like Slackware, Gentoo, others?!?,
but they are more geeky (so you'll need to learn). Also
GNOME and KDE are slow window managers. Xfe or others
are faster.
