      Hello Jun,


      Musta na bai! heheheh

      When you browse netscape under Linux... You have to consider a few
      things.. namely, disk speed, network speed, vm, multitasking latency
      issuesm and a bunch of other useless crappy benchmarks...;-)

      Should you desire some performance increase from your linux box...

      Perhaps it maybe beneficial on your part if you discovered and patched
      these latency issues..;-)

      Harddisk, use /dev/hdparm on your hard disk

      edit a few lines under /etc/sysctl.conf

      to increase your inode size, vm cache, task switch, and networking
      issues.

      You may also want to consider using the 2.4 kernel under your machine...

      And if that still ain't enough for you... Then you may want to try out
      accelerated-X or configure XFree86 for optimal performance...;-)

      If all else fails, use lynx....hehheeh..;-)


      Cheers,



      John Clark

        Hello Jun,


        There are simple ways to check on your problem...

        Check your /tmp, /usr, or /var usage....;-)

        Check your swap... etc..

        Check this article out:

        http://www.planetit.com/techcenters/docs/desktop-linux/technology_feature/PIT20001122S0008

        You don't need to order that book...;-) You can just download one
        online... Try searching for Securing and Optimizing Red Hat
        Linux...;-) Really cool book..;-)

        Cheers,


        John Clark
