I'd expect that behavour considering your system specs. The release notes say:
This section lists the CPU specifications required by Fedora Core 2.90
The following CPU specifications are stated in terms of Intel processors.
Other processors (notably, offerings from AMD, Cyrix, and VIA) that are
compatible with and equivalent to the following Intel processors may also
be used with Fedora Core.
o Minimum: Pentium-class
Fedora Core 2.90 Test 1 is optimized for Pentium PRO (and later) CPUs,
but also supports Pentium-class CPUs. This approach has been taken
because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced
performance for non-Pentium-class processors.
o Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better
o Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better
This section lists the memory required to install Fedora Core 2.90 Test 1.
o Minimum for text-mode: 64MB
o Minimum for graphical: 192MB
o Recommended for graphical: 256MB
I'm running Test 2 on a Compaq Armada M700 w/ a 600 Mhz PIII, 256 RAM
and performance is OK.
