Using Win2K with 512MB of ram and 1133mhz cpu and an 18.5GB HD, only 1/2 of
has been used; I have subscribed to a newsgroup that has 1 million files
currently available.

I wish to be able to, at least initially, view all the headers, or at least
search them.

But, Win2K complains about VM being inadequate when I try to download/acces
so I increased VM to 3072 MB and still the machine appears to be endlessly
paging. I really don't know what it's doin' but
I can only return control by closing the attempted group.

What is recommended to accomplish my aim here ?

Incidentally, I have the maximum RAM this machine will permit.
