[filmscanners] RE: my XP laptop is driving me crazy



As I understand it, the conventional Photoshop wisdom is to put the scratch
disk on the fastest hard disk and also not put it in the same partition as
the Windows swap file. If you can't use the FireWire drive, you might
consider creating a partition either for the Windows swap file or the
Photoshop scratch disk.  See, for instance, "Real World Photoshop" for more
details on this.

At 75% now.

That's a good suggestion, I'll try it and see.  Thanks.
