If it never had a memory upgrade, you could be struggling with lack of 
memory and excessive use of swap.  Take a note of the memory size and 
the size of the swap partition.  You might consider one of the 
lightweight *buntus as a better starting point.  I have a Windows 2000 
box that had been upgraded both in memory and motherboard. Performance 
is well below average with Ubuntu, but with Lubuntu (I think that's what 
I put on it), it performs really well.
