I removed this line

Note that when all the memory is free, up to N*4 bytes are required to store the states.

Lated I (or someone else) should explain why this isn't always true. -Jhawthorn 10:45, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Page frame/Page pool confusion?

Umm, if I recall my theory correctly, page frames are contiguous slices of the virtual address space, whereas a page pool is the allocation mechanism to provide physical page addresses to map in to a page frame, no? The page seems a little confused about the distinction .... --Childoftechno 02:38, 25 February 2012 (CST)

Wikipedia disagrees with you. I have never heard of the term page pool before you mentioned it, and a google search doesn't show anything except the windows Paged/Unpaged memory pools.
