When I added the write check under linux 2.0.29 that solved my problem.
If you're still getting bad lag at player connection, you'll have to check
your syslogs for more information.  It sounds like the lag is caused by
hostname lookups.  Have you checked to see if these are valid connections
from players with ip's that your dns server can't find?

If these are valid connections, you'll need to either turn slowns on, or
add one of the dns lookup patches (mine's pretty buggy).
