Adjust XP's virtual memory settings, your "swapfile" or "paging file"
XP places your "swapfile" or "paging file" (a portion of your hard drive that's used as a kind of pseudo-RAM) on your C: drive, and sets it up so it can grow and shrink as needed. However, you may be able to do better. For example, if you have more than one physical disk in your system, you may get better performance by either placing the swapfile on the lesser-used disk (assuming it's as fast as or faster than the primary disk) or by splitting the swapfile across two disks. You also may see modest improvements in responsiveness if you set the swapfile to a fixed size, so Windows won't waste time growing and shrinking the file on demand.
i.e. We have 512MB ram on all computers, and set our swap file to a fixed size of 700MB on a empty partition.
