IMO the most critical point is the memory configuration. VMs tend to use 
fixed memory, i.e. the virtual RAM is mapped to persistent physical RAM, 
reducing the available RAM on the host machine. One can play around with 
different amounts of virtual memory, starting with 512MB, to find out 
the best configuration for the host machine.
