Hello Good Boulder-area Linux People,

Recently I upgraded my linux box from FC2 to FC3 using anaconda.
Things have gone pretty smoothly, but now I have an annoyance.
Although I have been using linux for 3-4 years, I seem to have learned
very little.  

I have noticed an increased wait in getting an ssh connection to my
machine, after I enter my password; an increased wait in retrieving
mail (using a secure pop connection called from within mutt); and a
very long wait (~1 minute) to send a messsage (just a few lines of
text using sendmail called from within mutt. 

How can I go about looking for the source of this problem in order to
take care of it?  Which log files, etc?  Most of the discussion on
this list is a little more high-level but I appreciate any help you
can offer.
