i have been using a 32 meg swap partition and have filled it
up completely with no trouble (apart from a slowdown whilst
kswap ran).

perhaps this was an earlier limitation. here's a report now
from top right now:

6:02pm up 12 days, 8:04, 15 users, load average: 1.85, 1.84, 1.64
67 processes: 65 sleeping, 2 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 18.2% user, 4.9% system, 0.0% nice, 77.1% idle
Mem: 30948K av, 29168K used, 1780K free, 11680K shrd, 3144K buff
Swap: 30584K av, 26960K used, 3624K free 7444K cached
