Decreasing footprint size on gentoo

Ok I don't know of a better forum for this so I'll put it here. Basically I'm having major memory issues since I only have 128M of ram. Is there anyway I can reduce kde's memory footprint so that my system is more responsive?

There is no much to do. 128MB is the minimum for Linux 2.4 + Xfree + KDE.

So you need to disabled all eye candies, not use a background image, reduce the number of desktops and such things.

Have a nice day!
