Hello.. I just recently installed Redhat 9.0 useing the GNOME gui interface. Everything installed flawless, but it seems very slow. When I launch say.. Officewriter.org or one of the more intense games it comes with, it launches really slow. When I try to play the battleship type of game it acts like I'm on a 386 pc again. I'm running a Dell Dimension P4 1.6ghz, 40gig, 256 meg ram, Nvidia geforce 2 64meg..etc.. the machine is not slow by any means. Any tweaks that I need to do? Other than that, it runs pretty nice, but it just seems too slugish. I'm also hooked up with cable modem which works fine.

Its more then likely that you're using the XFree86 projects Nvidia driver, if you do an lsmod from a shell session you'll see something called "nv" ... what you need to get it the actual NVidia Linux kernel module available at www.nvidia.com, you'll want the linux-ia32 driver. Read through the documents on Nvidia's site for install instructions, if you need further help let us know!
