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.
