	You can sure remove a lot of those processes. For instance, do
	you need NFS and/or NIS? If you don't, I think that you can
	remove portmaper. Do you really need gpm? And xfs? And many
	getty's? Do you need to use gnome-terminal? I always use rxvt

	I guess that you can lower the memory requirements of your
	system... There seems to be room for that.

	The problem is simply that your system is swapping too much.
	You may use a program like vmstat to have a better idea of
	what is happening with your computer.

	Hope this helps, Roger...
