wsad 5.0 seems to be too slow and memory consuming , during start up ...while working etc..
1) Is there a way to speed things up with wsad...
2) What is the recommended memory (RAM) to run WSAD faster? I am running with 256meg

I think you will find in the install guide (to which there is a link in the readme) or the system requirements on the IBM web page that the minimum is 512, and 768 is recommended. There is other good info there, too.

256 MB RAM for WSAD 5.0.
No...
I tried WSAD 4 with 256 MB. And the performance is so... unacceptable. Until I upgraded to 512 MB RAM, then OK.
For WSAD 5, I had come across a forum, that the person using 512 MB RAM, performance is very bad until he upgrade to 1 GB RAM.
You definitely need to upgraded your RAM.
Then you will notice the difference.

"wsad slow"
With only 256Mb of RAM, that's akin to saying
"evil bad"
Seriously, though, 512 is pretty good. 1 Gig is much preferred--it means you can run something else at the same time, too!
