-=PCTechTalk=- Re: I Want To Try Something A Little Different!!



I just upgraded to windows xp but I am not happy with the=
 performance 
of it.  seems like its much slower than my original setup with 
win98se.  I have 152mb RAM and 30gig of hardisk space 
(partitioned c: 20gig and d: 10gig). should I repartition the=
 20gig 
c: drive for faster setup?  what is the recommended swapfile for=
 this 
setup?  thanks
