I am on a P4 1,6GHz PC with 512MB of RD RAM and a 5400 rpm Harddisk. I
often experience that calculatons on my image files (typically 30-40MB
files) get really very very slow. What are the best settings to opimize
settings for a PC. How many percent of total RAM, and so on. I cannot
believe that it has to be that slow.

If there is a FAQ that adresses those questions the adress of it would be
fine of course.

TIA, Bernhard
