2.4.0-test7-vmpatch2 very sluggish on Toshiba laptop

I am running Mandrake 7.1, pretty much stock with all the updates. I
would like to know how I might go about determining why my system is
incredibly sluggish using new kernels. Stock Mandrake kernels run great.

I guess I wanted to know if there was anyone else having the same
experience. Specifically, X is where I notice it the most. Even Eterm
takes forever to scroll a little. No disk activity.

I've got 128 megs of RAM, and it's a PIII 500.
Gcc 2.95.3 19991030 (prerelease)

All this is probably not enough info, so if anyone can help me at least
supply enough info to help solve my problem, I'd be in debt to them.

Attatched is my .config
