What are the consequences of moving the page file from the boot partition to a different partition?

Hi Guys,
I have seen many KBs and documents on the internet that suggest moving the paging file from the boot partition but I have also read below KB - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314482/nl
That indicates that once I move the paging file from the boot partition I will not be able to have a full dump.
Can someone please elaborate? Should I move the paging file from the boot partition or not (Windows server 2003)?

System dump files cannot be created for debugging purposes when you get a BSOD
Other than than its not an issue, you can move the page file
I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve though - its not going to make much difference to performance etc.
