True. Just pressing 's' in nn is easier than fireing up ftp next time you
connect to the ISP :-)

Looks good:

felix kraxel ~# cat /proc/swap
Filename Type Size
/dev/sdb3 partition 40956
/dos/c/386spart.par file 16384

Could be better justified (ok, just cosmetic), and would be nice to have
a column with swap priority.


I'll grab this next time I dial up :-)
