If you have an old motherboard, one that doe not support AGP,
yes, it will boot slower, as on boot it must make compensations for you're older MB.
Once booted it should be about the same.

identify your chipset and we might be able to make it faster with the correct Busmastering drivers.

Go to http://www.onelook.com/ AND TYPE AGP,
or http://webopedia.internet.com/TERM/A/AGP.html
That explains it better than I do.

Hi.not to worried about the speed of the boot process. Should I expect to run slower generally[i.e applications etc.} considering my system. I can live with it being a little slower for now as long has I can attribute that to my slower processer
Thanks

It's going to runslower with your old mother board.
It's not you cpu slowing you down.

Go to
http://www.geocities.com/~budallen/
"Windows 98 Section"
"The Complete Guide on AGP"

I have a very extensive page on that and will answer your question.
Too much to post here, but the short answer is AGP is the VLB for PCI.
Accelerated Graphics Port
