Your best bet is to set the low and high values to the same (make a permanent swap file). Since you have a good amount of RAM, you probably don't need a large swap file - maybe 100 to 300 MB. I have heard of people with 512mb RAM who don't even have a swap file! It is only necessary if you run out of RAM. Hope this helps!

IWill XP-333 / 384MB PC2100 DDR / AMD T-Bird 1.33GHz (o/c to 1.40 until I get a better CPU cooler!) / VisionTek GeForce4 MX440 / SB Live! X-Gamer 5.1 / Maxtor 20GB 7200 RPM HD / Toshiba 8X DVD / Sanyo 40/12/40X CD-RW / Win XP Home

Ya, daveppeters idea should work just fine. I have never heard anything about invalid swap file amount or whatever though
