Lightbulb Redhat 8 very slow

I have installed Redhat 8 on a machine that is a Pentium III, 256mb of ram and it's running bluecurve like an old 486. If I try to open a window, or a program, it takes forever... Any advice?

thanks in advance

have you looked in /var/log/messages ? You may find a clue there. For instance, look for repeated errors, or networking problems (such as hanging NFS mounts).
