Solving starvation problems in the scheduler

I apologize, but the whole Linux scheduler strikes me as so messed up. I have a 2.5GHz A64 w/2GB DDR500 that posts 7.8GB/s bandwidth in RMMA benchmark, with a recent hdd running 64-bit Linux -- and silly things like "ls" in the Mandriva cooker folder or copying to a USB2 drive bring the machine to a halt otherwise. My WinXP partition provides better interactivity, and it's starting to burn. I don't know what the problem is in the 2.6 series, but I wish it would get resolved soon.
