smartech it's not neccesary to partition for the paging and temp files. you also don't need to make separate ones for each type of data you store. Use folders instead of partitions to organize that stuff. that 8MB partition is actually reserved by win2k/ xp for converting a basic disk to dynamic disk. you have no control over that.

like whats being said, I wouldn't set aside a seperate partition for page/swap since you dont have a seperate physical HDD.
