Optimizing ReadyBoost in Windows Vista

WinHelp2002 posted a tip for systems with 2GB Memory or less that will result in an improvement with ReadyBoost.
You should dedicate a (approved) USB Flash Drive and just leave it plugged in ... in other words there is no need to use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray, even though it exists. This allows you to reboot or shut down the system and Windows will remember and set it up on the next restart.
See his illustrated post in Optimizing ReadyBoost, which has been added to the Features and Tutorials bookmark page along with the sites below, also suggested by WinHelp2002.

Edit Note 31Mar07: The bookmarks for Windows ReadyBoost have grown sufficiently to warrant a dedicated page. See Windows ReadyBoost.
