Yes, the entire drive is around 10GB. I might have made a mistake and made
the swap partition too big. There wasn't much free space in the knoppix root
partition after the install had completed, which might be causing the slowdown

It's possible, indeed. We did the install with only a half-hour to spare
before midnight, and so there wasn't really much time to check things
over afterwards.

I think Daniel's instructions will work correctly, to make one big
partition -- as things had been originally when win98 was installed,
although I'm a bit worried that the "grub" installation's menu.lst
file will be lost in the process, and thus render the existing 
windows 2000 installation on the first partition un-bootable. 

That's fine if Jose only wants to boot Win98 on the machine,
but I thing that may not be the case as he was fairly keen on seeing
that windows 2000 did boot up OK after the Knoppix install was done.
