I run RAD 6.0 on a 1 GB memory, 2.8Ghz machine and have no issues with the machine except when I start up WAS. Have you started up an instance of WAS in WDSc/RAD? Even then, I have paging issues but the machine is still relatively functional. What size have you set for virtual memory? Don't forget the IBM redbooks, there's lot's of information on new methods available.
