What percentage of CPU is devoted to interrupts?

dom at gallium:/home/dom$ vmstat -i | tail -1
Total                     3652124        244

This is a PII 450Mhz being used for my desktop, I've got XFree86,
enlightenment, XMMS, and some terminals running - as well as some
background daemons (samba, postfix, fetchmail) I'm wondering if you have
a problem with the chipset.

Of course, I might be talking nonsense :)
