That recommendation was given because in case of a panic the kernel will attempt to dump it's memory to swap for later examination. As far as I know the linux kernel still does this; I'll try to find out from someone who definitely knows. So you want at least as much swap as memory if you're ever going to look at a dump after a panic. Jeff -- Jeff Lasman, nobaloney.net, P. O.
