problems with updates, package manager, and firefox....

here is a list of the problems I am encountering:

1. The computer runs extremely slow when I open either "Package Manager", "Package Updater", and "firefox"

2. Both "Package Manager" and "Package Updater" are freezing up and need force quit

3. Firefox is freezing up the whole computer requiring reboot.

4. Libs that were supposed to be included in the Fedora 8 install are not being recognized. Such packages as libdvdread.so.3, I haven't written the others down unfortunately.

I don't have any flippin clue as to why this is happening. I'm running a Pentium 4 2.2ghz I believe, 2GB of ram, and a 370GB HD. Can anyone help with this cause?!

thanks any ways...

the advice always comes a little too late. I duno wtf I did to fedora but now it won't boot up, saying something about X windows not being able to boot. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to reinstall with out a cd only using 2 hard drives, one that will be formated for a new Fedora 8 installation and one with windows already existing on it. Any guides or links would be greatly appreciated. Peace
