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).

The kernel itself can run without a swap, but it's recommended. Do you want the kernel to begin killing stuff 'randomly' when you have some of your important apps running on the background?

Because... I would not be very happy if the kernel suddenly decides to kill a memory page actually owned by... let's say (as an example) Blender in the middle of a render or Avidemux in the middle of a conversion process, things like that :P
