Hmm, that's a possibility, though I suspect compiling your own kernel from kernel.org would be easier. 2.6.18 is quite old already, lots of improvements have been made since, under which many performance improvements. If you are not familiar with compiling a kernel, I can recommend you to check out the kernel compiling chapter from the Gentoo handbook, which pretty much applies to any distro (I would link it, but I only have access to a low-end smartphone atm). You can also make many small performance tweaks this way, by optimizing the kernel for your specific pc.
