      That is a simple one to check. Unmount the ext3 disk and then
      mount it as ext2 (mount -t ext2 ....). This is possible because
      ext3 was designed to be ext2 compatible.

      While you are at it, make sure you have the noatime mount
      option set for all ext2/ext3 disks.

      Also, Debian has many usually unnecessary services, like a
      mail server, running by default. To reduce swapping (thereby
      increasing slug speed), you can turn them off.
