Weird excruciating slowness of FC3t3



Okay, after the scare subject, I warn:

  1) installed on a Pentium II, 350Mhz with 128 MB of memory was usable
  2) installed on a Pentium III, 500Mhz laptop with 512 MB of memory was
     UNUSABLE

Get the weird part? Both of them were pretty normal installations. Disks
wiped clean with LVM, SELinux on.

There were no error messages at all. None whatsoever.

The laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4280.

Since my gf needed her computer working, I decided to just try a recent
Ubunto installation. It was way faster than FC2 ever was on it, even
though the desktop is also GNOME 2.8. However, it doesn't include
SELinux or LVM support for / .

I'd like to go back to FC3 on that laptop when it comes, but I can't
perpetually test it that hard, how can I give more information that
might prevent such weird things to happen again?

I have free space enough for a parallel installation, but it will never
be the same as a default Workstation...
