Well Soy I assume from the CPU speed 700Mhz that you are running a Pentium 3 and that combined with only 256 MB(is that one stick or two) of RAM probably explains why things are slow. Adding more RAM should inprove things dramatically. I suggest increasing it to at least 512Mb (two sticks of 256 MB each) and if the mobo will stand it why not 1 GB (two sticks of 512 MB each). You should see a marked improvement. You are probably using PC100 or PC133 168 pin SDRAM(check the module in place for sticker which could tell you what it is) so make sure you buy the right stuff.
