OS/2 can use all of your available disk spacs as swap file. So find
a drive with lots of spacs available and point the swap file to that
drive. But I ever solve a system of equations in an alpha machine with
128mb memory still got out of memory error. I am thinking put a 1 giga
empty hard drive in my computer, point my swap file to there and let
mathematica for os/2 to solve that problem again, see what happen.
