I have just installed Red Hat Linux 9.0 on my PC (Intel Pentium 233

extremely slow : the least application (even the desktop menu) takes
several minutes to open.
Please advise : Can Debian Linux do better ? And what is better :
upgrade Red Hat to Debian or install Debian from zero ?
If you want the funtionality of A nice desktop, but need the speed, try
installing xfce4 (will will mean grabbing the debs from unstable or even
Also install discover, apt-get install discover
This will save you a lot of time, as this is debians hardware detection
library, and so far I've found it perfect, basically it's responsable
for auto loading the required kernel modules on boot.
