I have a Athlon 1.2 GHz 512 MB and it is not slow on FC5, though I'm not
running the same mix as you are.  I think possibly something is not right
on your system.  Does top show a high load, or indicate that the system is
swapping?  Perhaps the disks are fragmented -- EXT2/3 data structures don't
suffer much from fragmentation, but the file data does.
