If you go to start, then right click "My computer", then click explore, you will open up a dual pane window showing your partitions and folders in the computer. You can click on the + signs next to the folders to open then up . Open the folders up to the FILES you want to move over to the other partition. There you can click "Select all" in the Edit menu, Then click Edit > "copy to folder". you will then get a new window open where you can find the folder on the other partition to put the files. Click OK and they will be moved there. Be patient because moving many gigs of data may take some minutes.

I was kinda looking for a way to move the actual virtual usable memory
The PAGE FILE memory i think you are talking about is nothing more than drive space that windows uses for a swap file when it runs out of usable memory. It is the unused space on the hard drive and when you do not have much HD space you start getting errors.
From another site,
Adjusting Virtual Memory Settings
The required settings can be accessed from within the System Control Panel applet which is accessible by right-clicking on the My Computer symbol and then clicking on Properties from the drop-down menu. The other approach is to click on the Start button, go to Settings/Control Panel/System. When the applet opens, choose the Properties button and click on Virtual Memory.
For Windows XP, the sequence is to right-click on My Computer, choose Properties, go to the Advanced tab button, click Performance Settings, click on Settings, click on the Advanced tab once again and in the Virtual Memory section, click Change.
The default setting for this is set on the "Let Windows Manage my virtual memory" option. Click the "Let me specify my own�" and select the drive where you will put the swap file on by clicking the drop-down list in the Hard Disk field and specify the maximum and minimum swap file size in the proper fields. Once the parameters are set, exit the system and reboot the computer.
Dual Hard Disk Drives
If you have two hard disks in your computer, choose the second hard drive for the swap file to reside on. Windows will be working from the C: drive (your primary hard drive) AND simultaneously swap program codes and data to and from the swap file on the other drive.
What Size Swap File?
Using a fixed swap file size means that the swap or page file will be static so that it will occupy side-by-side cluster chains and will run little risk of fragmentation. At the same time, Windows will not need to waste time or resources in sizing or resizing the swap file. The downside to this is that the swap file cannot go beyond the maximum size when needed - which can lead to a system crash.
Most people set the swap file size to 1.5 x the memory in the computer.
Please tell me if you have this window in Firefox. Do you see the downloads part in the middle. This is on the main page in Tools>options.
