Hi all!

I run Ubuntu Hoary on a G3 Powerbook Pismo with 400 MHz CPU ,630 MB Ram, 
30 Gigs Harddisk, Orinocco Wlan Card,...... and I'd like to improve the 
performance of the system, as much as possible.
I run a CPU - Meter and it shows that the CPU gets totaly busy when it's 
got to do lot's of Graphic operations, like displaying Apllication 
Windows, too many progress bar's, moving windows around, playing Flash, 
DVD's or movies. So I guess a faster window Manager than Gnome would be 
a good improvement, but which would suite my needs?
I should mention that I like Gnome a lot, so there shouldn't be too much 
I guess I could do a lot of kernel improvements, but also don't know 
which screw to flip where, so I get an optimized system.
Also every other suggestion, how I could improve my system's overall 
performance are very welcome!!!
