I have decided I want to have suspend to disk ability. That requires swap
equal to my RAM, doesn't it. Will that automatically happen too?

I think it's OK to be kind to animals, smile.

Being the rock solid decision maker that I am, I plan to have a 30gb boot
drive, 8.5gb of swap and the balance of the TB as /home. I wonder what I will
actually do, tomorrow?
The one thing I am certain of is this: I will have a properly configured and
backed up computer for the first time in over 20 years. I can just hear my
computer say "whew!" That means, "it's about time".
I am so excited, I can hardly wait. Additionally, I am going to try to get a
copy of Jaunty that contains KDE 4.2.3. I read that is possible. If so, I
will install that. Talk to you later my friend.
