Default Fedora


I have 2 Pentium 350 MHz Compaq machines. I had them both run under Windows 2000 and each factoring assignment took 6 minutes. I then switched one machine to Red Hat 8.0 and restarted factoring. Each assignment still takes 6 minutes.
I then installed Fedora Core 1 and restarted factoring. Here each assignment takes 18 minutes. (same range)
The screensaver was set to none, the system monitor says the process receives in the upper 90's % processor time, just like the other machine, I could not find any power saving for the pc. What else should I look into?
