There's a lot of 'interesting' information missing here, including:

(1) what kind of hardware do you have in your machine?  I see you have
    an aha, a pas, and an lpt...
(2) when was your previous sup?
(3) what kernel did you experience the 'excessive pauses' with,
    i.e. what devices did _it_ have in it?
