So if I understand this if I allocate more memory for my standalone 
apps created for classic Mac OS in order to make room for media running 
in my standalone I would actually be making less room for my standalone 
application and media? Of course I will need to test this. Does the 
standalone builder in Mac OS classic running on classic set a proper 
memory size for each standalone that it builds?

This is interesting because some users only have 32 meg systems.
