This not-always-simple topic is covered in the Squeak FAQ item "FAQ: Squeak Performance Tuning"... see http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/1799 .  This page should probably be updated with some of the info that Andreas just provided.

I'm not sure if the color-depth mismatch problem is big enough to warrant an explanation right on the startup screen (main project) of Squeak, but perhaps there could be pointers from the startup screen to the Squeak FAQ, or to certain FAQ items...
