Page File vs. Virtual Memory in Windows XP

I had heard that Virtual Memory and the Pagefile are one in the same.  Recently I did a system info on my machine and found the following…

 

Total Physical Memory           4,096.00 MB

Available Physical Memory     2.49 GB

Total Virtual Memory              2.00 GB

Available Virtual Memory       1.96 GB

Page File Space                      11.61 B

Page File                                C:\pagefile.sys

 

 

The list above shows them separate and when I change Virtual memory size in System Properties, the Page File Space in above list changes but so matter what I change it to, the Total Virtual Memory in above list stays at 2.00 GB and the Available Virtual Memory stays at 1.96 GB…  

 

It appears that XP considers them separate from Page File memory so how does one change Virtual Memory?

 

Thanks for any info
