Why would a machine with that amount of memory need that much swap space?
I'd have thought it wouldn't need more than 128MB at best as swap.

I'm thinking about buying 2 x 72pin EDO 128MB SIMMS every month until I
have a full set of 1GB of RAM for my dual system. Does that mean I'll have
to buy a hard disk just for swap space? 8)
