Disk Druid does not allow me to proceed installation without
selecting a swap partition even if I have 64M ram. If you
have more Operating Systems(Win95,WinNT,Solaris7, an older
RedHat a.s.o) you will find hardly a extra room for a linux
swap partition, and if you really need it after, you could
swap in a file later. And when I wanted to install RH on my
diskless system, I boot the first disk over the net but I
was unable to mount root over the NFS (disk druid does not
like that -- (maybe a warning would be enuf)).
