1) Compiz doesn't need memory, it needs _video_ memory. Is this what
you mean? What video hardware do you have?

What is Disk&Filesystems?

You don't need to use the terminal to mount partitions in either KDE 3
or 4. HAL should be doing that for you. HAL is not a part of KDE, it
is added by the distro (in this case Kubuntu). It's been a long time
since HAL has been known as problematic. What types of partitions are
you mounting? Hard drives? USB memory sticks?
