My System Specs


If you format your USB drive to Fat32 format, XP can use it as fast pagefile, unfortunately your USB device tranfere rate is 50 ms or so which is alot slower then hard drives. It is possible, the pagefile gains are there but access speed will be your bottleneck.
If your in the mood, when you install your operating system, partion hard drive with a 5 gig fat32 partion and direct windows pagefile to that drive to get the most from your hard drive as fast pagefile space.
