Yeah, I agree.  Isn't it possible to create multiple swap partitions
though?  Infact, this makes more sense, in some ways, because you are
utilizing different devices, and, if you can swing it so that you put
your main swap on a different disk than the one that gets the most
use, you can speed things up...  Correct?  I think the size should be
increased, though.
