How to move pagefile to another drive to enhance performance of sbs 2003

We're running a SBS 2003 network with one server, 2 gb of ram with a 3.5gb pagefile. Our main database program is running slowly and thought that moving it off the C: drive would help speed things up.  So, what's the process to move the pagefile to another HD?  Thanks.

The procedure is here:

However, this will affect performance positively only in case you move it to the different hard drive, different partition won't help.

There is a good article by Daniel Petri about optimizing the Pagefile and how to move it:

As @lucius_the has already said, moving it to a different partition won't help, make sure it's a separate drive you are moving the PF to.
