That just means that not speed control application is telling your CPU to run
slower than full speed, and that's not a cause of slowdown. I don't recall that
you said what your CPU is, but if 800MHz is full speed, it may not have any
speedstep or other features.
I'd look elsewhere. If you run "vmstat 10 20 >stat.vm" and examine the output
file, you may see some indication of the bottleneck. Of course if your computer
is old and slow, no tuning will make it otherwise. :-(
