I too have 64Megs in mine. At first I did have the Virtual Memory turned off, and it worked much better. However over time in my programs, which is in a school-organization, the utilities had some problems. I would suggest giving it a try and then try all you normal programs to be sure they run, and run properly. You should see a difference.

Vramdir, here again I would try it with and without, if it can handle it keep it because you should see a bit of difference here too.

Win97 is suppose to have better memory management, but until it comes out we really won't be able to find out what improvement if any.

Keep in mind no matter how much memory you have you are still limited to disk access time, which this is really what takes some much time.

One thing I do on my machine is,use some of DOS6.22 commands, is load ramdrive.sys in the config.sys, which can set aside 32Meg as another drive, and then load you programs into here. If you run your programs from this ramdrive, you much better access rate, however since it does use part of your memory you will need to try different combinations to get the best output. On my machine, my programs load faster than I can double-click.
