I have to computer running the same version of slackware but with different hardware specification.

Pentium 4 1.4ghz
256mb SDRAM
40gb HDD
80gb HDD
10/100 Ethernet Card

Pentium 4HT 3.0ghz
1gb DDR
120gb SATA HDD
10/100 Ethernet Card

I'm running xfce on both machine as my desktop manager. I've notice that when I transfer huge amount of data from PC2 to any pc on my network, xfce respond so slow. But when I transfer the same amount of data to and from PC1 it works way fast than PC2. What seems to be the reason why PC2 is working slower that PC1 despite of the specifications. PC2 is obviously way fast than PC1 but i outperfoms PC. Is there any thing that I should configure or tweak to maximize the performance of PC2?

How do you transfer data, with nfs ?
Also, any error in dmesg, what does top show in PC2 when xfce respond so slow ?
