Of coz it does! Even vi will run faster with an extra CPU! =)

When I's working at AT&T, we were testing a couple of boxes with similar
config like yours only diff HD and running Red Hat. 99% of the time, 5 min
avg loading is less than 0.30. (I plotted it with MRTG.) So my suggestion
is get more RAM instead of an extra CPU. (Can 2.0.35 handles more than
128Mb RAM? Anyone?) If u are sceptical then try plotting the CPU graph
