Performance from hell

I've used Server and Player and and seeing problems that I just can't explain. Ubuntu 7.1 - 2GB of RAM and yet when I run the VM's (which have 1GB of RAM in their configuration) I never see more than about 150MB of RAM in use and the disk is thrashed to the point of performance akin to my old Floppy based CP/M system.

2 VMs means about 223MB of RAM in use and worse performance for each of the VM's. I have yet to figure out why anyone would WANT to do this virtualization stuff unless they just want to sit and watch the grass grow!
