Running Linux without a lot of the crap that Mandrake likes to run in the background will also help.

As will getting rid of any desktop environment that you are using (for example, Gnome or KDE) and running just a minimalist window manager (like {black,flux}box, twm, or even no WM at all).

To run a game with no window manager at all, do an echo gameexecutablename >~/.xinitrc, then startx to start up just X with your game as the primary client. Move that .xinitrc file out of the way when you want to do anything else.

Edit: Now I see. This thread is a good four months old. Well, in any case, the info's there if anyone wants it in the future...
