FYI, I'm experiencing nearly identical problems; also Toshiba laptop
PIII.  The "upgrade" also broke AFS; my sysadmin had to compile new
AFS kernel modules.  AFS works now, but I'm experiencing extreme
slowness like you.  Haven't tried recompiling/removing the alsa
modules yet; will try that tonight.  I also noticed that hotplug
produces numerous error messages during boot-up.
