Kind of a bit of both.  I can hear the box grinding trying to deliver 
a web page and then for about 5 or 15 seconds something is happening.  
Doesn't matter where I download the page from or which operating 
system I use to view the site.  Same result.  There is 1Gb of RAM in 
the box which should be enough for a machine that delivers about two 
web pages a week.

Kind of wait for seconds and then download slowly.  Annoying problem.
