win4lin doesn't provide more memory to windows (it has a maximum of 128MB
available to windows under version 4), but IME the disk access is much
better under linux (especially compared to NTFS), and the swapping/memory
management is much better also. 

I ran an earlier version on a PII-300 with 64MB of RAM, and windows 98 under
win4lin was faster/more resposive than NT4 native on the same machine.
