Memory upgrade

I have an AST 486/66 that I upgraded from 8MB RAM to 20MB. The system is still accessing the hard drive a lot and runs programs slowly. I', on Windows 95.  Even though this is a 66, is there a way to speed things up?

Check Control Panel-System-Performance to see if your PC is running at full 32-bit. Some CD-ROM drives could slow the system by loading their 16-drivers. Also check that you got enough free space for swap. It's also wise to regularly Defrag your disk.
Check the Device manager to be sure that there is no conflicts.
