Do you have a swap size 2 times your ram?

This is a general recommendation, but I believe its
a requirement at the moment with 2.4 kernels.
On the other hand, my swap is half my ram and everything
works OK, but I'm hardly using any swap.

Check the linux-kernel archives:
Theres lots of talk about how swap has changed in 2.4.
