Try the following steps:
1. Increase caching on your ldap-server
2. Extend your use of indeces.
3. RAM-modules are cheap.. 128 MB on a server is a bit low.
   This might actually boost things up for you if you add more RAM.
4. Are you running in ATA100-mode or something similar?
   If not, this might be an idea.

I also would be careful with running server-stuff on IDE-disks
if performance and liability are issues for your concern.
SCSI is your servers best friend :-)
