For me the biggest jump in speed (at least 5 times) was when I emulated HD in RAM (I use SperSpeed Software for this)

Next step just redirect WORK directory to this disk: 1) Find file Sasv8.cfg 2) Find line -WORK "C:\SAS\SAS Temporary Files\" 3) Change it to -WORK "N:\" (Assume that it is the RAM Drive)

My configuration now 1GB HD in Ram and 512MB for OS works for me.
