First thing: upgrade to a 2.4 kernel; that really boosts performance

instance) will do.
I will do this then. I originally didn't upgrade out of memory
considerations, but meanwhile the mem was upgraded from 32M to 96M, so
guess it would be no problem.
Well, not only that (boosting the performance), but using a 2.4 kernel
was a requisite for a PMac 9500/180MP that I had for a few months to
recognize all the PCI slots that it had, while the 2.2 kernel wasn't
able to see everything.
Among other things, this meant that I couldn't use X without changing
how the cards are internally disposed with a 2.2 kernel, while with a
2.4 kernel things would just work.
I would suspect that the same thing would apply to your case.
Hope this helps, Roger...
