Description Dimitris 1999-04-08 14:15:46 EDT
When installing RedHat 5.2 without a
swap partition, the installation will
not continue and will require a swap

Since when is a swap partition a requirement
in linux? you are the first distribution
that requires one.

Please fix it.

Thank you for your suggestion. It will probably be an expert mode
option for the next release of Red Hat Linux.
