    I want to change the partition which is used for virtual memory, due to the fact that my OS X partition is under 8 gb. From the searching i've done on here, i've only been able to find one program that would allow such a change called Swap Cop. However, it seems its only for Jaguar and i don't want to attempt using it under Tiger unless it'll be alright. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    I asked this question on here a long time ago, and no one answered. I have a 10gig main partition, so it hoses me too.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    There is another website that's concerned with Mac OS X optimisations and it has the step-by-step procedure to move the virtual memory location.

    I believe that it's Accelerate Your Macintosh but I'm not 100 % sure since I haven't looked there for a long time. (My link says 2001!)
