I'd also advise getting away from the on-board IDE if you can.  1) it
can't handle bigger than 120GB (addressing issue), and 2) it's slower
than frozen molasses.  Anything less than 256MB and you'll be swearing
at it...

At the very least, a second faster IDE and pointing swap to the
original is a must in my mind.  It was barely liveable with an
optimized Gentoo (compiled over a weekend) with XFCE on 256MB.  I
finally switched to a 733Mhz G4 with 512MB that showed up in the "to
surplus" pile, and was much, much happier.  (Last $ork.)
