Audacity goes crash....

I'm running KNOPPIX 3.4, on an old IBM 300pc, using the KDE desktop with a measley 128mb RAM and a pansy Pentium 2.

I've been working on a music file in audacity, trying to edit one of three tracks- the vocal track. I click on EFFECTS, then on EQUALIZATION, and proceed to lower the db level of the current selection. I hit enter to carry out my change...

and then BAAAAM!! There goes audacity, without so much as a peep from my console. It has the same problem in FLUXBOX. Any suggestions as to how to remedy this?

Maybe KNOPPIX 3.4 has bugs.
BTW, They just released 4.0

That's cool to know. Although, after trying 3.9, I don't think it would work for me. See, the 3.9 distro changed the knoppix-installer command to something else- rather than actually orienting the distro to the HD, the knoppix team found it better to come up with a command executed from the kernel boot (I forgot the command). However, this doesn't do the typical 2.5 gig install, it instead just copies the knoppix disk to the HD as is- as 700 megs of compressed-on-the-fly data.....

My problem, then, is that KNOPPIX 3.9 ran ten times slower b/c of that change :-(
