I also have a P-233-MMX with SID, and it crawled too, until I found out that 
my motherboard supported large DIMM's.. Now I have 256M (instead of 32M) and 
the system is reasonably fast. Dselect still uses about 10 seconds every time 
I go to the 'select' screen, but otherwise it is very workable... I just 
installed KDE3.1-rc6 on it, and it works great.. 

The only unfortunate thing is that I have now a 133Mhz Dimm working at half 
speed... ;-)
