this rocks man. i am really realy liking this. i didnt set a drive as a swap drive since i have 3GB of ram. think that'll be okay?
creating the /swap partition is ALWAYS recommended as it makes the kernel able to move unused memory pages, so if you're running tons of applications and leave the computer on for a long time, trust me, you'll want it, otherwise the system response becomes quite sluggish (but this varies from person to person, but it's more or less the general consensus among distro builders).
