Chuckle, why do you ask?

FWIW, in shuffling drives around for the last install, I wound up with 2 
drives each having a 4GB swap.  No problems, they both work.  I thought about 
disabling one of them, but its the shoemakers kids story, never got around to 
doing it.  So I have 2 swaps totaling 8GB on a machine with 4GB of ram.  
Shrug.  It has never actually used more than 100 megs.

Cheers, Gene
