I happened to have performence trouble, that were finally due to bad 
connecteurs. I changed the wires, and that was it. Another time I did a 
cleaning on the CD device lens.
Sometimes one has such problems because of too little RAM.
Filip, do you have less than 128 Mo on your muchine ?
Graphic environment : you don't like Gnome, try Kde, or Xfce4.2 or Ion3 
or BlackBox, or Fluxbox, or Ratpoison, (I don't remember the others)...
