How does it handle the cases where there is more used memory than space in
the swap partition? And where can I get this program?

Also, talking with a friend a few days ago, he mentioned a feature of
another unixoid os that allowed to take a snapshot of just one program
(and dump it to a file). This would be quite useful for a number of
things.. Is there anything similar in linux?
