How memory-intensive is VMWare workstation?  I have a P4 3.0GHz with
1/2Gb of memory at home - is VMWare going to be a total drag on the
system or is it lightweight enough that I can still run (as opposed to
walk or crawl)?

I run VMWW at work, but that's a Pentium-D with 2Gb of RAM, and top
shows vmware using 199m virt, 1.1g res and 1.1g shr - not sure what that
means (but it looks like bad news for the home situation...).
