the trouble is, your usb media is unlikey to be faster than the hard disk drive due to the bus speed of usb 1 and 2.
but hey its worth a try.
>right click on "my computer"
>click on the "advanced" tab
>click on "performance options"
>in the virtual memory section click "change"
>here you can choose which volume your paging file will reside on - make sure your usb media is mounted at this poitn or you wont see it in the list
the sixe of the paging file is important, same rules apply as they do for a linux swap file, about 1.5 time the size of the memory installed is good, however, windows likes to choose the pagining file size itself so might be better to let it choose this for you.
good luck, let me know if it works, i may try it myself.
