Depends on hardware. I've got a 486DX2/66 with 8M RAM swapping to IDE;
if I compile the kernel and run Netscape at the same time, disk activity
goes up markedly, both processes run at a snail's pace, and interactive
performance isn't too hot either. OTOH, doing significantly better in
this case would take a miracle.
