Make XP run faster

I had a lot of trouble with Windows XP. Despite a Centrino 256MB RAM laptop that's just about 2 years old, XP was really slow. Infact I felt it to be slower than my Celeron 400 Windows 98 128MB RAM machine I have back home. I felt the situation to be very similar to Parkinson's Law: Resource requirements expand to fill in resource availability - similar to "Work expands to fill in the available time".

Anyway, thanks to S Anand, I came across a bunch of tips to make the system fast. And it works. The speed difference is visible. If you an XP based system, this is certainly worth a shot!
