Just curious if anybody knows the reason of my problem. I try to install the new painkiller patch but it goes to a dos prompt and says not enough system memory. I have 1 gig of ram and a 600 meg swap file. Any clue what is causing this?

well, of the top of my head I'd say that your swap (paging file) is way, way too small. Do a forum search for paging file. Perris wrote a great article on this.

Indeed, that will explain the background and why, but the basic recommendation will be to allow your page file to be system managed - and the probable initial result from that will be an increase in size to about 1.5GB
