I should have been more specific. As I said, it consumes up to 70% at 
times. The vast majority of the time it hovers around 30-40%. However, 
I'd hope that we'd get more than that from a 2600+, so I'm not sure what 
else I could be missing. Do you have any specific kernel compile tips? I 
guess I could try adding the pre-empt patch to see if that helps.. 
currently running stock 2.4.x without any additional patches..
