Bizarre.  I have a PII266 with 64MB of RAM and I don't have to wait
anywhere near this long. Nautilus takes about 5 seconds to display a
window for the first time, and maybe 8-10 seconds to load.

I experience minimal usage of swap when launching Gnome 1.4 (with
Nautilus).  It does tend to grow a little (I have 128MB of swap, and it
might use 10%) when launching Mozilla.  Evolution (which I'm using right
now), has no effect on swap at all.

Sounds like you have some other issues going on.  Is the hardware in
your machine properly supported by Linux?
