did You set up some swap file? how big? You should have a swap file at least twice the size of Your ram... (Yeah, I know, collosal disk eater on machines with lots of ram, on those You could do with the size of Your RAM + a little bit more...)

How much ram do you have?
What processes are running in the background?
Stop all the processes which you don't need. Try not to use KDE but a WM with a smlaller footprint like fvwm/afterstep, etc.
