you may want a small one just in case, but you dont need it.
Yea, that's why it should be around 700MB-1GB.

i dont know how much ram he has, but i ran 2gb forever with very small/no Pf and never had any probs.
i dont know bout vista tho. i just bought my wife a lappy from dell (yes it's an AMD ) that has it and one gb of ram. i just got it yesterday so i need to monkey around on it. it uses 60% of the system memory. but, from what i have read, that seems to be because vista uses it differently than XP (and it isn't a system killer like it would be in XP), although i am not certain of the specifics. yet.

nothing on the OS drive and a small one on the storage. i wouldn't think you'd really need it, but say maybe 1-2gb? like for emergencies lol? seriously, i never needed a PF.

if you have two physical hard drives, put the PF on the drive that doesn't contain your operating system.
minimum would be 0. i'd try that first and see if you had problems (you wont probably). max 2gb yes.

A second partition isn't a second hard drive.
