go to start/control panel/performance and maintenance/system. click on advanced tab and then the settings button under performance. click on the advanced tab and then the change button under virtual memory.

Generally with xp it is probably best to have the system managed button selected. If you are still running out of virtual memory, and have the hard drive space go to custom size and select a larger size. Generally 1.5 times the amount of RAM is considered optimal and that is usually the upper end of the system managed settings.

One trick is to set the maximum and minimum sizes as the same, that keeps windows from changing the size of the swap file, but that seems less necessary with xp than previous incarnations of windows.
