    You need to actually read the article:

    ...."But while Windows Vista Home Premium will backup those files for
    you, it turns out that you need to upgrade to Vista Ultimate if you
    actually want to restore from that backup. If you have no intention of
    doing that, here’s how you can adjust the amount of memory your computer
    allocates for system restore"…

  2. The instructions for reducing disk space taken up by system restore has been
    available on my website since early January,
    http://vistasupport.mvps.org/decrease_storage_space-allocated_to_system_restore.htm
    and judging by the page hits it appears it is quite a popular solution too.
