How to make linux go fast

get a 3.3mhz AMD 64 cpu.  Working on the graphics card, I guess I have an integrated via piece of crap, and I guess I am using vesa grahics.  So far, not too bad.

via = shitty motherboard manufacturer
vesa = old, very old way to say svga. You used a vesa utility to play old msdos games in more than 16 colors (or 256, I don't remember very well)

The MB is asus, the integrated chips are from via.  I got rid of the on board sound.  Havent had much luck with the integrated video which is via.

I think I have given up.  I am just going to use vesa.  I got the opensource driver from above (a lot of sense that made) and everything was so cpu intensive.  I am sticking with vesa for now.

Unless somebody has better advice.
