	You should really put an EXPLAIN ANALYZE of your big query.

	This little query plan seems OK to me.
	Two very small tables, ok, hash'em, it's the best.
	Now, of course if it is repeated for every row in your JOIN, you have a  
	The question is, why is it repeated for every row ?
	This cannot be answered without seeing the whole query.

	Another question would be, is there a way to structure the tables  
differently ?
	Again, this cannot be answered without seeing the whole query, and some  
explanation about what the data & fields mean.

	Please provide more information...
