One thing that often helps speed up vm's considerably is to relocate the virtual hard
drive to a separate physical disk (not just a separate partition) than your OS. Because your OS and the Virtual machine are both accessing data on the same disk at the same time the I/O opperations slow both machines.

Edit:Also defragment the drive where the image is stored, or use a defragmenter that supports defragging single files and just defrag the HD image.
Thanks Ritho

Sounds like good advice.
Just out of curiosity. In your opinion what are the minimum hardware resources that offer reasonable performance?
