I bought a Roland D50 and connected it to my PC via a midi-usb adapter.
After many clicks finally I managed to have some sound come out of the PC
when I played the D50's keyboard. However, when I used a host (Minihost,
which has only 361Kb!...) to be able to take advantage of VST instruments, I
came to the sad conclusion that there's a delay between the pressing of the
key and the hearing of the sound!... This makes it virtually impossible to
play anything properly. I then used V-Stack instead and the result was even
worse, the delay increased by around 2 seconds!
Is there a way to prevent and avoid this annoying situation?
My PC is a Pentium IV 1.5 with 512Mb RAM.

this "delay" is called latency. (u'll find loads of documentation with a
google search)
it depends on the soundboard drivers...
may be u'd try different drivers such as asio4all or u can try to reduce
the buffer of the soundboard (1024, 512, 256 etc.) via the control panel
of the sb itself(clicks occour sometime applayng low values) .
hope it helps

Meanwhile I found asio4all. Great driver, it works fine, thanks!
