I have one HD which has two partitions. One for the OS and the other for the recovery partition.

My question is, is it possible to put my Page File on partition D (Recovery partition)? Because it has over 1GB of space free.

I would not worry where the page file is put by windows. It is only there when windows runs out of memory(RAM) that is usable. The newer Vista and XP do run ram very well but theres always some programs that dont seem to let go of memory.
Putting the page file on the recovery partition could cause problems with fragmentation in the recovery files. It would be far easier to just buy more memory for the computer. I average 2 gigs and some computers already have 3 and 4 gigs of memory in them because its so cheap. On sale for $40 for 2 gigs at newegg, tiger direct, and other on-line stores just cant be beat.
