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. -- Ching-Mo Chang <chang at theta.math.wsu.edu>
