Thanks for that bit of information. Now I'm wishing even more that my
Ubuntu Live CD would still work, so I could check to see if it will use
an existing swap file as well. Woops I forgot! That won't work on my
system anyway, I don't have a swap partition, as I screwed up during a
re-installation of Ubuntu, which was necessary after messing up, and
freezing up the Gparted Live CD while resizing partitions. I neglected
to create a swap partition then, so I'm using a swap file instead.
