I'm having P4 1.6GHz m/c with 128MB SDRAM, 40GB HDD. dual boot (30GB for WinXP and 10GB for RedHat linux 9.0). Video chipset is SiS650. I've Generic VESA driver automatically detected and installed by RedHat and Video shared memory is 16MB. My problem is that all of my GUI applications are very slow. It takes 50 seconds to launch the OpenOffice writer 1.0 at first time and second time it takes 40 seconds. Mozilla is also taking 30-40 seconds. the SWAP partition is of 256MB. BOOT partition is of 100MB.
I want to know where the problem lies. Is increasing the SWAP partition from 256MB to 1GB works?
what I've to do now?

Another option for you to check on is:

make sure you have dma enabled. My machine was experiencing great problems with 1GB of RAM and it made no sense at all. As soon as DMA was enabled,.. boooomm.. fast fast fast.


Just my 2 cents.
