Can the same Pagefile.sys be used on a dual-boot WinXP-32bit/WinXP-64bit?
My work laptop is set up with Windows XP - 64bit version. Since the Cisco VPN client (et. al.) won't work in 64bit Windows I also have Windows XP - 32bit version on a separate partition. My primary OS is on drive C:\
Both partitions (C: and D: drive) have a 2GB pagefile.sys in their root directory, but each OS only uses one of them while the other just takes up space.
(I think) I have made Debian and Gentoo use the same swap partition without problems.
Is it safe to point both OS-es to use the same Pagefile.sys, removing the other (or just use both of them as a 4GB pagefile)? Only one of them is running at a time.
Any formatting/byte-alignment issues? - It's just used as memory so I would think it's not a problem...
What could go wrong?
How would I set it up?
