As an aside to this, I use two 64MB swap partitions in my system so it
will interleave the data between the two hd's.  As far as I could tell,
the installer can only setup one swap partition.  The option to setup more
than one swap partition and also possibly set their priority (to the same 
thing, in my case) at install time would be useful for me.
