Hi.. I am just about to reformat my 80gig maxtor hdd. I will be having me and xp on two partitions and others for data... xp is nfts...obviously me will be fat 32. A couple of things would help me before I do this though. I have asked before one of the questions but forgett the sequence in which to do them.
First... I will be using xp more than 95% of the time.. Me just cuz some hardware is not recognized by xp... question one then is does it really matter if Me is on c: drive and xp follows on d: drive... Or would it be better to arrange them the other way around?
Second: When I install my software... some large apps like Premier and after effects etc etc... Where would be the best place to install them..? I had a similar set up before.. I put them into c: drive which was ME but the xp drive seemed to fill up space reall fast, could not understand why...I will mostly be running them under xp but you never know I may want ME one time...... Ok nearly there bear with me, thanks.
Third.. I was told this but have forgott....The swap file.. I believe I should set this first before I put all my apps on.. Would be handy to have advice again on how to do this.... for both ME drive and xp drive...I only got 1590m memory.
It is a 700mhz? Amd(t) duron processor.... award bios mo35l processor.
Any other tweaks would be appreciated and considered.
If anyone knows of any good deals on memory.. I would like 512 in one stick if poss that would also be handy....
Thanks for taking the time to read this mine novel lol
