Two things that might speed it up some,
1) update to something past 1.11.1p1, they started using mmap on the files
in 1.11.2 which CAN make things faster. and as an added bonus you get
security fixes.

2) see if you can get a newer kernel, self compiled.  a kernel optimized for
the hardware you have (instead of generic 386 calls) can be a little faster
thus speeding up the whole system.
