I mean seriously it was solved in the first two responses.

I'm sorry guys but this is really unlike most of you.
You are right. But I had the impression that the OP is still searching for the gold at the end of the rainbow.

Cool. Whatever.

Not that I post very often, but I won't be bothering again since the part-line group-think is just too powerful to bother butting up against.

I'm off to uninstall my ramdisk driver since I know now that it can never work.

Well, it works for me. Don't go uninstalling your RAM disk just because some of us are set against it. It's a personal choice. Go for it.

People can be stubborn. It does work, and it makes sense to use it for a page file.

Btw, the address space is not "4GB-1" it is 4GB

I created a page file but i dont know whether i should replace this for the page file of the c drive or what? But it is a bad idea though since my ram drive has only 640 mb and is it enough for paging the c drive?

The size of the page file depends on your needs. Many small books have been written on that subject.

AdamantForce, did you modify it by hand, or did you trust some mysterious russians to do it for you (hint: it could be a bad move)?
