goto ControlPanel/System and select the Performance tab. In the virtual memory section select Change and select the C: partition. In the two boxes (Init size and max size) type 0 for both. Click on Set. Then select the other partition and set the initial size equal to your hardware RAM. Make the max size between 1.5 and 2.0 times as big. Now click on Set again. Close all control panels and reboot. Check if c:\pagefile.sys still exists, and delete it if it does. d:\ should now have a new pagefile in its root...

hope this helps
