    I am reading this recommendation from MS on

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;197379

    It recommends that I should put my pagefile onto another partition on another harddisk all together for better performance. How can I accomplish this feat of true wizardry? Is it worth it for me? If I am gonna do this, How should I do it, what should I look for? Thanks in advance......

    See here for an example and info.

    I have a fixed, shared (98se and XP Pro) page file on my second (and faster) drive.

    couple of things that havent been covered

    1 . startup & recovery / system failure / : - set this to none,
    ( or you could leave a small pagefile on your bootdrive for a kernal dump )

    2. leave about 10% free space on your page file partition

    :cool:
