Not that this is perhaps much practical help - though it may assist in 
establishing some pattern - but I'm running kde 3.4. - not sure if .1 or 
.2, on PCLinuxOS. And like your attempts in Windoze, the whole thing - 
in Konqueror, Opera and Firefox - loads perfectly and very quickly. My 
ISP is AOL - 2mb broadband, Athlon 2400+ Thoroughbred. As to what's 
causing your problem, being new to Linux (though a very old hand at the 
Other OS) I wouldn't hazard a guess. But whatever I hope you soon get it
