i remember when i first started using freebsd about 2 months ago, the first 
kernel i built, i did the ULE (at some articles recommendataion).  but, ive 
not done it since.  i guess i have been noticing a bit of lag on my system 
(amd 1800mhz 512rdram, u160 scsi raid0), but nothing unacceptable.

however, since i didnt have a problem with my first kernel that i did, and 
your positive response, i decided to go ahead and change out the specified 
scheduler in my kernconf, and let 'er rip.

is your system a desktop?  were your prevously running the same desktop 
configuration on the same box, with the 4BSD?  is the ULE scheduler suited 
for a server setup as well (my server is also SMP), or is this something that 
should be kept to a desktop?
