His dmesg output suggests a Celeron on a 440BX (oooo... FSB tweaking! Yum!)
chipset, and I haven't heard of similar problems with that config in this
manner. This article would suggest that if you had 64Mb RAM and then upgraded
above that, THEN you could expect a performce drop (which would suggest the
majority of us are running our machines with the performance drop already
there), unless you were using 430HX in which case the barrier is 512Mb. I
still think it's a disk issue. Maybe. :-)
