Apache or PHP bogging down on Server 2003

I've got a Dell server that I was running XP WAMP for intranet developement and everything worked just fine. I will soon be hosting my own website on this machine so have moved to Server 2003. It is currently at the preliminary stage of just having Apache MySQL PHP installed. Nothing else has been done yet as far as security, firewall, antivirus etc.

If I am directly on the machine accessing the website through localhost, about 75% of the time on pageload it will stall with the statusbar showing "waiting for localhost" for 2-3 seconds before loading the page. It doesn't happen on any specific pages, just appears random.

I have another computer on the intranet that is also running a WAMP setup with a duplicate copy of the website/database on it. On this computer I edited the mysql_connect string to connect to the database on the Dell server and everything works perfectly - I believe this eliminating MySQL as the culprit.

Any insight or a direction to look would be much appreciated!

There was a bug related to localhost IP-stack-handling that I know applied to Windows XP. A patch was released a long time ago for this.

I do not know, however, if the same problem existed in Server 2003.
