Im building new Windows 2003 Enterprise servers with XenApp 4.5 (32 bit).  
Servers have 16Gb RAM.  Hardware was originally sized for x64 but we must go 
with x86.  How big should the swap file be if server has 16Gb RAM?  If I follow 
the RAM X 1.5 rule I will end up with a 24GB swap which seems like overkill.  I 
have the disk space but was wondering what the best practice is or if there are 
dissadvantages in using a large swapfile.
