Running Beaver from USB want to use hard drive for swap

I have been running Beaver off of USB for a while now and am generally comfortable
with it but the VM is slow and probably destroying the flash memory. I put a swap file
on the internal hard dirve and that improved the browser performance. However,
I;m not familiar with the LVM2 thing and wanted to just mount the minimum amount of
stuff to allow swaps without making it possible to delete files. The mapper lists a swap
partition. Can I just mount that and have Beaver use it without additional fiddling?

Mounting the root partition and creating a swap file worked fine but required
that I make the other files vulnerable to corruption.
