One thing everybody should do to speed up this operation on slow machines is to
turn on Panel->Global Preferences...->Miscellaneous->Menu->Keep menus in
memory.  I guess if you're running tight on memory you can leave it off, but it
really helps on my Pentium 75 laptop with 40 MB of memory (a machine certainly
limited by CPU speed, as long as I don't leave netscape running for more than a
few hours).
