Low frame rate

I am loading a ClodMesh with 3208 vertexes, 19338 indexes (6446 triangles)

and attempting to texture it with grass ("jmetest/data/texture/grassb.png").

I am also drawing white lines for each triangle.

Also I am creating 23778 more lines.

Running on a Sony VAIO

Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 GHz

1 GB or RAM

Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset

Performance runs around 4-8 FPS.

Any suggestions? More questions?

"Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset"

Get a new desktop? No seriously, is this graphics card even capable of rendering 3D at anything over 10fps?  Are you running the latest drivers for it?

As you'll see throughout this board, that chipset is a dog and has had troubles across the board.  You might consider picking up a cheap Radeon 9600 or similar.
