Temp DB expanding is from Server Configuration
in Microsoft SQL Server Enterpriñå Manager:
Server|SQL server ...| Configure ...
Temp DB in RAM : 0 for stay on disk, x for memory allocation
if 0 TEMP_DB device stands for expanding on disk
0

Right now I have 2MB ( I think it's on HDD) and I would like to expand the tempdb to 20MB on disk. should I just type 20 in the box instead of 0 in the configuration tab?

no you must type 0 to tell to the server that your TEMPDB is on your HD and after then to expand TEMP_DB device to 20

besides in MSSQL Server 7.0 beta space and memory allocation is automatic, no more this problem.
