how do you move page file to seperate HDD

Hi all,

I'm spring cleaning (early i know) and doing my yearly backup and format to load XP from scratch.

I heard somewhere that having the page file on a seperate drive is a good idea and as I have two internal sata HDD's i was going to give it a go.

anyone done this successfully? any help on how to go about it would be appreiated

When entering the values for the size, times the amount of RAM you have by 1.5 (at least) and set the minimum and maximum size to that figure - takes up a bit more HD space but will stop fragmentation.
