is it normal to have a permanent swap file in win98 ?
is this one of the 'improvements' ? , i knew it was better in win3.11 but i thought they were a thing of the past. the build i have is 1691 but the swap file stays at around 24 meg (minimum upon boot)
i have 64 meg of ram and a 233mmx ...
is this normal ?

e-mailed replies would be better please to steve@smbr.demon.co.uk

Windows 95/98 will always use approx 1/3 of the memory for swap file.  You can control the minimum and maximum setting by going in control panel and then system then performance and choose virtual memory then select one of the two (let windows manage virtual memory or let you decide) if you decide to manage it you can give a minimum and maximum size.  One of the benefits of letting windows manage it is that it can grow when it needs to and shrink to about a 1/3 of the memory that is installed.  If you like my answer then please award me the points.

Yes, and it was normal under Windows95 also. Windows will dynamically change the size of the partition. As a question, what build are you using, and where did you get it? I have a final b/c I was a beta tester.
