Mandriva 2006 tooo slow

I am new at linux, i installed mandriva 2006 powerpack in a pentium III 500mhz 256 ram 20gb. The thing works too slowly it takes about 15 minutes to start and starting applications takes for ever. Is this suposed to hapen?, is my system too old. Im not sure if i set up the video card correctly but i dont think that should make the system so slow. Any help would be apreciated, thanks a lot.
