i found this proposition a bit ridiculous to begin with,
although maybe now i'll have my head bitten off for it :).

i run a reasonably basic system, and before installing Debian on
my laptop, it had 128mb of RAM and _no_ swap, which was more than
enough to accommodate everything.  performance in 2.4.5 was so
bizarre that i've gone back to 2.4.2 for the time being -- mind
you, this is 2.4.5 with a few other patches applied (like
Netraverse's win4lin patches), but i don't think they'd be so
drastic as to affect the performance of the VM system.

and since i'm running a laptop, there is _no_ way i'm going to
dedicate 512MB of precious laptop HD space for a swapfile,
especially since i've run on 128MB of RAM with no swap for > 6
months with no problem.
