For labs and such, however, local harddrives are a maintainence
nightmare.

There was a project a while back called "rswap," which someond
did as a graduate research project. It allowed swapping over
inet, only instead of an NFS file, it was a special swapping
server.

Info can be found at ftp://ftp.di.uminho.pt/pub/linux/rswap
(I believe the original documents are in Portugeuse, so if
someone ever wanted to translate...)

The only patches were against 1.1.0, however. I wonder if the
system is still feasible with 2.0....
