    Agreed, it is not just in one layer of the system.

    However, changing the kernel _has_ resulted in a large
    improvement in interactivity and does allow me to run
    bonnie++ or even a 'bk clone' while playing mp3s and
    without losing interactivity or having the mp3s skip...

    On a machine with 192 MB RAM.

    regards,
