Open Office should be turning over on 700 with 256.

Cause you are running gnome or kde with too many options on.

233 pent with 196 megs of ram can turn over open office 2 Ok slow start time. Once started fine.

Ie XFCE fix its menu system and you have what you need. It only eats 4 meg of ram comparted to at least 80 with gnome on lite. Gnome on heavy can take 200 meg alone. Lack of ram lack of speed.
