Increasing Worldbuilder Performance using Windows Vista

I'd like to let everyone know that I've found a couple ways to dramatically improve the load times of the C&C 3 Worldbuilder. I've posted the article here on Generals World. Here's a snippet:
If you fall in the Midrange or near Bare Minimum and are running Windows Vista, you can still make Worldbuilder run faster using a feature of Vista: It's called ReadyBoost. It allows you to cache to a thumb drive instead of your hard drive. Caching is used when a program takes up more memory than you physically have in RAM. Hard drive caching is slow. ReadyBoost attempts to remedy the problem by allowing you to dedicate a USB key or Memory Card (which have faster seek times than a hard drive but still slower than RAM) to caching.

Read on for instructions as well as some unofficial Worldbuilder requirements and notes. Happy mapping!
