Hmm; that's not good. I'm having reasonable success using the i586
kernel - no kernel rebuild or other options. I've also turned off many
of the unnecessary services, following some of the hints at
http://kerneltrap.org/blog/keithmo

Replacing the i686 kernel with the i586 version wasn't too tricky, but
I couldn't replace one with the other directly. Instead I did this:
 * install kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3.i586.rpm from the updates
 * reboot, selecting the 2.6.9-1.678 kernel from the boot menu
 * remove kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 (the i686 one)
 * install kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.i586.rpm from the updates
 * reboot again

-Mark.
