    This new generation has me worried!!! If I don't write a swapfile key like say maybe this one ---> ConservativeSwapFileUsage=1 under 386enh in sys.ini then how else am I gonna keep more of the kernel in RAM ?? Superfetch you say?? That may well be, but I am from the old school where we learned everything ourselves and didn't go to a $50K a yr. college to learn it. I like TRIED and TRUE methods.You do know what 386 enhanced is right? The [386Enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI file contains information specific to running Windows in 386-enhanced mode, including information used for virtual-memory page swapping. As far as you wondering about my machine DCMonkey, I triple boot XP Professional SP3 (32 Bit), Windows 7 Ultimate RC (32 bit), and Server 2008 Standard SP2 (64 bit).


    I find it hard to believe that the kernel is still honouring these settings, and a quick google search for that Virtual Memory one you call it suggests that I am right.

    Have you any evidence that these swtiches are still processed by the kernel?
