Some people attest to XFCE being a faster, more efficient windowmanager than GNOME. It does look more minimal, and I'm intrigued myself. You might give that a try. You'll also want to see that nothing unnecessary is eating up resources.

/sbin/chkconfig --list
will show you the processes/services set to run at different runlevels. For example, to turn off sshd for runlevels 345 do:
/sbin/chkconfig --level -345 sshd off
More info about chkconfig with
man chkconfig

Also try fluxbox windows manager; it is really fast compared to gnome or kde. If your computer is still slow after disabling some services and a lighter windows manager, maybe you should try a lighter disto such as Damn Small Linux (DSL). I use DSL on an older computer and it works great; I use Fedora and Debian on my newer machines.
