You can change the page file in the Advanced System Settings

Advanced System Settings can be reached by right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties or from Server Manager by clicking the Change System properties link.

Click on the Advanced tab and then click the Performance/Settings button.

@rdmustang - isn't that just for changing the size?

I don't see a place to change the location of the page file in the Advanced System Settings.

I don't have access to a Windows 2008 server but a server admin I know said that it's the same as server 2003.  In server 2003 you click the "Change" button under performance options.  From there it will list all available storage options.  You tell it how big of a page file you want on the drive you want, then set the page file size to 0 on the drive you are moving it from.
