You had some other problem likely kernel related. (Hint: check your swap
A while ago I tested 256 MB on KDE, Mandrake 10, OO and even enemy
territory with kernel 2.6.
Everything was supersmooth in everything but games, ET load times were
slower, but I never bothered putting all 512 back in, I gave away 256MB
for a 128MB module, and 384MB with kernel 2.6.8-1 is superfast. Just as
fast as my celeron 2ghz with 512MB running the same stuff.
Anyway, check the archives and stuff.
