How can I make my iBook run faster?

I am using an iBook, Mac OS X, 10.2.8, 256 MB G3. I have 26.95 GB available space. Lately I am having a lot of slowness using Flickr on Safari and my iPhoto program. The rolling beachball takes over. Takes a long time to load pages. Sometimes it just goes on forever like it's in a loop. When I try to do a force quit, I am sometimes not successful and have to resort to hitting the power button to restart. I've also had several times lately where Safari quit unexpectedly.

Basically, my question is how can I increase the speed? Can I somehow compress the info to gain more space on the hard drive? I'm not overly computer literate, so I will need details if there is a way to solve my problem. Is 26.95 GB of space a lot or not? Also, I recently emptied the cache.

Thanks for any help.
