Hmm - not sure about fixed-size swapfiles - I don't like 'em much unless
they're fixed at 2GB.


Fixed size is the only way, that I am aware of, to get it to D: from default
C:
Don't have a copy facility other than Windows OS to perform task.
It came up as a means of reducing swapfile defragmentation, stable at 3
fragments.
My processor is Celeron 733Mhz

How big is drive C:?


C: drive holds all 'Program Files' as some only work where OS is located.
Size varies. Since I am still working on re-install of WinME, currently size
is 5.GB half used.
New programs use it up pretty fast until their caches can be moved to
DATA:E or TEMPS such as Outlook Express, Netscape, RealPlayer. Have not
found WMP caches yet.

There's really not a lot of point in locating the swapfile on a second
partition of the primary HD - it may actually slow the system down in
certain circumstances, as the head has further to travel

This has me confused!


Read about using this on a newsgroup about a year and a half ago. There is a
little increase in performance.
When TEMP etc moved there, re-installation of OS is made easier.
Track zero error shows up every 6 months or so. Repair shop has tested
drive for several days using their own WinME OS too. Don't have confidence
that their OS will work any better than my OEM CDs.

WRT your query about 512MB - ME requires a tweak in the System.ini file


add the following line in the [vcache] section
MaxFileCache=512000
There should NOT be anything else in that section, unless you have more

than
1GB installed

Question is on my Celeron 733Mhz 512MB machine with 'Ultimate Boot Disk'
Tweaks there is more than just one line as follows:

[vcache]
Chunksize=512
MinFileCache=8192
MaxFileCache=8192

I am also experiencing 'slow performance' using Netscape 7.2 Browser
Javascript page changes.

You only need to add the line to [vcache] that Noel refers to if you have
more than 512MB of RAM installed.

Firstly, adobe what? and which edition / version? (is it advertised as being
compatible with your operating system)

Second, what operating system (e.g. Windows Millennium) are you running on
"this computer"? (the make and model of the computer may be helpful too)

Thirdly, what error reports do you see when "it keeps rejecting it"? (tell
us the exact wording of any rejection reports or describe any other
indications of failure)

And finally, what "start up issues"? (might be worth fixing them first
before you try installing anything else, as they may or may not be related
to the "adobe" issues)

What's all this about? References a post I made in 2004 when I was Crazy!
