You _do_ realize that this list is for a different distribution of
Linux? As fustrated as you might be, we will be even more fustrated if
you ask us to provide answers to your questions without giving us all
the relevant data for us to make our analysis.
We do not know why you are still using RH9, even I stopped using it a
year ago. If your machine's cpu is one of the slow ones, increasing
ram is only going to make it go maginally faster. What is the output
of free and top both before and after the ram increase? You need to
find out where the bottleneck is and tell us.

How should we know? I am tempted to say no as I think that machines
that can handle 128MB should also be able to handle 512MB ram.

I can see that. With subject lines like that, I usually turn on the
sarcasm key on my keyboard. Lets try and be less dramatic in future.
