It's hard for me to answer this question. My first response is to buy
more RAM or a faster drive (e.g. SCSI v. IDE). But you don't say
anything about what you define as "huge" or how big your databases or
anything about your computer's specs.

This information would make it a bit easier for us to make a more
intelligent response.
