The chromium site has the answer for its slowness,
it needs hardware acceleration and you need to install
driver of your card,
for your card it can be
as is listed in FAQ.I have not checked it, but I will,
It seems interesting. As I checked the site it seems
that ATI driver is not fully complete for XFree4 that
you are using,
It you had a Nvidia or new ATI it was so easy because
their drivers are available,
If you are a beginner it is very good to install
GNU/Linux several times on your computer. But know
that you will never (approximately) need to reinstall
system to solve a problem here.
You can search for reasons and solve them, it will
help you to advance your knowledge about computer if
you are/will-be a computer professional.
