Swap File Location

Hello
I've always used a Swap file! However I read that placing it on another drive was prefered. What about another Partition? The OS that I'm really worried about is WIN XP Pro, and I'm using 768Mb Ram DDR Memory. At the moment I have two choices:

HD - 0 = (2 partitions) Win98/(WINXP-SWAP FILE)
HD - 1 = (2 partitions) WInXP/FILES

--- OR ---

HD - 0 = (2 partitions) Win98/FILES
HD - 1 = (2 partitions) WInXP/(WINXP-SWAP FILE)

Is placing the Swap file on the same HD but on another partition OK? I do have plenty of HD space.

Thanks for your time.
Sincerely, Sandman38
