Description Need Real Name 2003-06-26 21:34:05 UTC
Description of problem:


With reference to the above URL, a customer suggests that the section 
entitled "Recommended Partitioning Scheme" should be clearer and state that the 
max size for a Swap partition is 2GB. Please also mention that if the user 
requires more than 2GB for Swap partition, they should create more than 1 swap 

This is because this customer have 4 GB of RAM and as recommended by this 
section, their swap partition should be at least equal to the amount of RAM on 
their system which is 4GB but they failed to create a swap partition bigger 
than 2GB and wonder what they should do. They couldn't find the information in 
this manual on how to solve this by creating an additional swap partition.

Great suggestion, thanks for submitting it. I've added this information to the
swap partition recommendations. The new information will be available in the
next release of the Installation Guide.

Thanks again!
