:ok, that works ;]
:must say my box is working fine, stream music works while doing

This will depend heavily on how much memory your system has. Since we
do not schedule I/O yet, only CPU, any disk intensive activity will
interfere with (slow down) paging activity. So if you don't have a lot
of memory there are going to be issues.
Use 'systat -vm 1' or 'vmstat 1' in an xterm to observe paging activity.
If you aren't paging there could still be a scheduling issue.
Also note that certain programs, like Mozilla, which can eat a ton of cpu
for periods of several seconds when loading pages, may still be adversely
effected by a background buildworld. This is because it's fairly
difficult to discern between a cpu-guzzling mozilla and a cpu-guzzling
