This is a good analysis of Readyboost, click here and this is what Microsoft say. click here

The key to Readyboost is to get the right type of flash memory. Not all USB sticks or flash cards are RB compliant although if you have a spare one handy to try it's worth a go.

The key for compliance is not just a fast read/write speed (like used in cameras) but a fast speed across the whole of the range and for rapid repeat read/writes.

Many of the new flash drives are marketed as RB optimised or compliant so look out for them.

PS. If it was me and I could afford it I would get more RAM, a total of 2 Gigs is fine for Vista.
