I have an IBM P3-450 with 256 MB (the max) and a 12.1 GB hard drive with 500 MB of free space. I run Win 98SE. My system started seizing up intermittently (seizing = freezing temporarily for several seconds), and I'm figuring that this might be due to the fact that I'm forcing my system to use virtual memory and it has such little free space on my hard disk.
So, I bought a new 40 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM hard disk. Even if the new HD doesn't fix the seizing, I wanted more space anyway, so it's still a good purchase.
I would like to install the new, bigger HD as my boot drive, transplant (cut and paste) my Win 98SE system from my original (12.1 GB) drive, and use the 12.1 GB drive as auxilliary storage.
How can I do this?
What, if any, problems might there be?
How should I configure my swap files (how many, which drive(s), size(s)) and how do I do this?
