How do I tell what to look for? what is normal? What is causing slowness? if there is slowness?

The above is a good article.
The 3 core items that you should be looking at are:

1) Page faults - high paging indicates that there is insufficient physical RAM.
2) CPU - sustained CPU use over 80% indicates that either you do not have enough processing power, or there is a process that is using too much CPU and adversely affecting other applications.
3) Physical Disk i/o queues - a sustained queue length over 8 indicates that the disk subsystem may not be coping with the workload. This can be an issue with applciations like SQL that have a very high i/o requirement.
