    I just replace my HD, and I cannot find where to set a pagefile for using the HDD for additional "ram"


    Also is it possible to adjust the amount of shared video memory?

    I have a macbook, it has 64mb of video mem. now.

    On the pagefile:

    I assume you're switching from Windows. OSX, unlike Windows, doesn't let you specify where or how much disk space is used--it automatically uses your boot drive and as much space as it needs. So you don't need to do anything--it's already using your new drive.

    (Note that, if you have multiple drives/partitions, you CAN manually tell the OS to put it somewhere other than your boot partition, but that involves doing some relatively low-level UNIX things. There are tutorials explaining how about the web.)

    I'm pretty sure the answer to the second question is no, you can't. There may be a hack, but I'm not aware of one.
