d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

\015\012Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
\015\012Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
\015\012Click OK.
\015\012After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
