So if I have 4GB of physical RAM, I should have 8GB swap?B.S. Computer Science, B.A. Political Science | Commercial Pilot Airplane Single and Multiengine Land, Instrument Airplane

The 2x rule of thumb is rather outdated, currently. I like to have a /, a /boot and a /home partition. My swap right now is 1G, which is rqual to the amount of ram I have. I hardly ever even touch it.

I usually make my swap partitions 1GB, but then again, it depends a lot on what the system is doing. Most systems that I build I expect never to actually rely on swap. A system with 320MB of RAM, that will probably dig into swap if you fire up a GUI and a pile of applications though.
You can use the Win2k bootloader, but it's a bit of a pain, and not a beginner thing.
I have 1GB of physical ram right now, and I have 2GB of swap (1GB on each of two separate physical disks). I'm currently using 2MB of swap, and my system has been up for about a week running all kinds of desktop applications."Some people, when confronted with a problem, think 'I know, Ill use regular expressions.'
