Best settings for Windows memory on Parallels

Was getting an error about Windows running out of swap space. Found the issues was the compacted disc image didn’t have enough headroom for Windows to expand the swap space, and it was set at 50mb. The cure was to go into the memory settings in XP and set it for a fixed swap space. Good results for Parallels set to give the recommended 424 mb of RAM, and Windows set to a fixed swap space of 848mb. Snappy performance and no more error messages.
