Hi Everyone
What should I have my virtual memory set as [Celeron733mhz, 192mbRAM, Windows ME]
I have noticed that if I am downloading music and using computer at same time, it is slow downloading pages.....
Grateful for any suggestions,

Hi Charlie
When you are downloading music or any other files, the slow download time for pages will mainly be due to your other downloads taking up Bandwidth and not the virtual memory.

You have perfectly enough memory for surfing, etc. If you are noticing PC slowdowns during modem use, and you are using an internal modem, your modem may be designed to use your main (733) CPU for processing, as a lot of new cheaper modems are. A new 56k external modem will help with this, but probably will not make any difference to download speeds. Btw internet downloads are always fastest if you do them one at a time, with no online browsing during the download (ok to flick through pages already cached). You will never get more than about 20MB/hour (optimal) out of a 56k connection.
