I am running RHEL 6.2

My machine is responding sluggishly (different machine than described in my last post)

The putty and the IMM response are both slow

I am only running a single ethernet adapter

What kinds of things should I investigate to determine what the problem is

Ping it first. See how long the response is.
Next see if the server is loaded (check top/load avg values)
Check from a different system/network and see if the response remain sluggish. Check network config details of your switch/LAN etc..

Like Legolasthehansy said check ping and see the response,
Also check tracert / traceroute and see if that brings up and odd way of connecting.

Run top and see the cpu and memory load.
(check man top on how to sort what uses the most cpu or mem)

run ifconfig to see if  you have packet errors.

That's a start.
