Just as a start, until the experts arrive ......

Is Xfce just too much for the system?  It ran nicely here a while back on
a 900mhz machine - but was noticeably slower than fvwm, so I ditched it

Firefox works - but does it take forever for ff to start?

Xterm works - close down firefox and everything else, fire up an xterm
and run top - is there anything using up a lot of memory or cpu that
shouldn't be there at all?

Have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log  - any interesting error messages?

What does your .xinitrc look like?
