I have mine set that way even though I have a gig of RAM. Some will say that the system is faster with a set size to the page file, but my experimentation with it was inconclusive.
Windows likes it's page file--it can have as much as it wants. I would just rather not have to ever worry about it.

The advantage of setting VM manually becomes apparent when the disk is very full or very fragmented. When windows manages VM it may expand it or make it smaller. If the disk is fragmented or full the page files may also become fragmented because windows could not find a coherent space. When you set VM manually you shut this section of the disk and dedicate it entirely for page files.
It's true that this is not a common occurance and well maintaned computers will not suffer from it.
