What are the pros and cons of using or not using Mac VM on the machine
running SIMS? Assuming the machine has lots or RAM (> 100 MB), is VM a good
thing, a bad thing, or does it not matter (assuming the VM setting is 1 MB
greater than the real RAM.

Make a big difference what OS and what machines.  In general, VM is a GOOD idea only on newer (8.1+) OSes and newer Macs.  The VM scheme is better, faster, and causes less conflict.

On the other hand, my 8.0 sims server on a 6200 has VM enabled and seems to trundle along ok.
