is there a way to make vmware run faster?


hi,

i am running an msi kt3 ultra2 mobo with axp 2100 and a 256 mb ddr pc2700 with a 7200 rpm ide hard disk from seagate.

the problem is that vmware workstation 4 runs really really slow on my redhat 9.0. the guest os installed is win xp pro. when i tried to run dreamweaver mx, gosh, i at up 15 minutes before i gets loaded!!!

i already installed the vmtools after the installation of win xp.

by the way, my red hat has these daemons running besides the default ones... mysqld, named, httpd.

is there a way to make things faster?

thanks

"256 mb ddr pc2700"

Put more ram in the computer... 256, that's just sad.. my 999$ laptop came with more than that 3 years ago!

It might help to shutdown the daemons you've mentioned, but a lot more RAM would be a quicker fix. Of course expecting 'performance' out of a guest os might be pressing the point.

actually, its not only the guest os that is like a turtle... its also the host os, which is redhat 9. from kde, i noticed that out of the 512 mb swap alloted, there is 28% used when i have a guest os running and my 256 mb ram is full.

i guess you are guys really right about adding more ram...

now where will i get money...
