[THIN] Page file on separate partition?

Someone told me that it's always better to put the page file on a terminal 
server on a different partition. While I understand that putting it on a 
separate *disk* should achieve some performance improvement (due to 
parallel disk access), I wonder why putting it on a separate partition of 
the same disk  has an advantage over the system partition. In this case, 
the read/write heads of the disk drives have a longer way to move between 
both partitions, so this could lead to a performance degradation instead of 
an improvement. Am I wrong here?
