I've noticed the responsiveness problem as well. For some reason RedHat 
9 on my new and fast machine was much less responsive under load than 
even my old 300 Mhz maching running RH8.

I found an easy solution to this annoyance in the RedHat 9 kernel RPMs 
provided by Planet CCRMA. Planet CCRMA is a group hosted by 
who are focused on audio support in Linux. In any case, they've made a 
2.4.22 kernel with the preemptible kernel patch as well as various low 
latency patches.

Probably overkill, but it did the trick. You can find the rpms here:

I used the 2.4.22-6.ll kernel
