I think I found the problem.  I am finishing up a full LFS 4.0 install
with all the bells and whistles (gnome,mplayer,etc).  I formated a
temporary partition with a boot cd that did not support reiserfs or ext3
so I made the partiton ext2.  I can't believe how the systems overall
performance with ext2 is _so_ much slower then reiserfs.  I should be
done with my LFS 4.0 soon and will copy it to it's final resting place
on a reiserfs partion.
