Has it been decided what kernels will ship with potato? I'm a little
worried that someone may install a 2.0.xx kernel after creating a > 128M
swap partition, which will cause grief. Perhaps there should be a warning
about installing such a kernel if a large swap partition is found? The
-v0 option to mkswap may have to be used here to force an old-style swap 
area (to handle situations where potato is installed using 2.2 kernel
bootdisks but a 2.0 kernel is installed).
