[Tutor] 1.5.2 slow going

Hi everyone,
I just loaded 1.5.2 on to my old IBM Thinkpad(486, 20MB RAM, Windows 95)and it is running
at a snails pace. To open IDLE takes approx. 35 seconds and the command-line is only slightly
faster and once open, it's no better.

Does anyone know if another version of Python that might run a little faster?
1.6?, 2.0?, Python for Win 3.x?.

I know the obvious thought may be a system upgrade or new computer,
but everything else runs great.

Any help is appreciated.
