My computer specs are as follows:

AMD Athlon XP 1800+
640 MB DDR [133 MHz]
40+80GB IDE HDD<<40 GB is the Master and 80GB slave
nVidia FX 4000 128 MB AGP
1 CD/DVD RW and 1 1 CD RW
OSes: Win XP pro [SP2], Ubuntu, Fedora Core 5

Now I have 5 partitions in my 1st HDD, C:\> Windows, D:\> MS Virtual PC, E:\> NTFS partition for application and Data, F:\> Linux SWAP and one 5GB partition for Ubuntu.

2nd HDD: 21GB for FC5, and I, J, K, L, M, N, O of different sizes. Out of these only one is FAT32 [shared between Win and Linux] rest are all NTFS.

My questions is: does having so many partitions slow down the computer performence considerably? I am also seeing a lot of disk activities lately. Please suggest how best I should organise the partitions on my hard disks. I have Partition Magic 8, so data loss during partition is not a problem. I need advices badly and quickly.

Secondly, is there any way to increase the windows temporary folder size?

Please :whistling: :blink: :help:
