On the 2.0.x kernels that is true, but
less /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes ( on a 2.2.x kernel yields
Among other changes made in the development of Linux kernel 2.2, the
128 meg limit on IA32 swap partition sizes has been eliminated. To use
larger swap spaces, you need the new mkswap found in util-linux. You
also need to upgrade util-linux to get the latest version of mount.
