That sounds good. You have to remember that SQL 6.5 requires manually
configuring the RAM, which means anytime you add ram, you have to change
the setting and restart it. Otherwise, the addition of the RAM doesn't
help any. You should see quite a bit of difference between 32 and 128MB
of ram for SQL Server.
