page file is the area were your OS offload certain items from the ram to make room for things that are more often used. but for XP the reccomended size is 1.5 times amount of ram...but since you have 4gb of ram that would be a quite huge page file...but i would say 4gb for a page file is big enough.

oh and PF means Page File. since you asked lol
