What are the optimal swap and cache settings given a pc with either 256 or 215 mb ram with a Celeron 2.6 Ghz CPU? What about other stuff like himem.sys, emm386 (and it's various settings), smartdrv, buffers=, files=, etc?

Hard drive larger then 120GB question by USR
Hello: I know that there is a limitation in Win98SE with regard to hard drive size greater then 120GB. My question is, if I put a 320GB hard drive in an SE box but only create a partition of 120GB or less, will I still run into problems? TIA
