OS 9 using lots of RAM - Mac Applications & Software

Hi, Im running OS 9.2.2 on a dual 1.25 GHz G4 with 2 GBytes RAM and OS 9.2.2 uses a lot of RAM, more than 500 MBytes, sometimes more than 600 Mbytes. How can I reduce the amount of RAM that the OS uses? I cannot use virtual memory because the computer has more than 1Gbyte RAM. To comapre, in my G4, laptop which has 1 GByte RAM, OS 9.2.2 uses less than 100 MBytes? e-mail to [email]jose-conchelloomrf.ouhsc.edu[/email] or post to this newsgroup will be greatly appreciated. -- ================================================== ========================= Jose'Angel Conchello Ph:(405)271-6137 FAX (405) 271-3153 [email]jose-conchelloomrf.ouhsc.edu[/email] Associate Member | ...

    and OS 9.2.2 uses a lot of RAM, more than 500 MBytes, sometimes
    more than 600 Mbytes. How can I reduce the amount of RAM
    that the OS uses? I cannot use virtual memory because the

    OS 9 will only use up to 1.5GB of memory. So it just marks the rest as
    in use by the system. If you want to use the full 2GB in your G4,
    you'll have to run OS X.
