Do you run NIS or something else polling user/group data from the
network? Maybe DNS lookups? Try firing up a paket sniffer, for example

tethereal -i eth0

I don't think the slowdown will be kernel related, this is usually the
network's fault, but just in case try grepping for "D" processes in ps'
