maybe he just read in that funny linux books that swap should be 2 times ram
size... it was true at 8-16mb ram time...

I've used 2.4.0-test and later 2.4.x kernels with 64mb ram for a half year,
without any swap. Everything worked until I started both Staroffice and
netscape 6 at the same time :)

Now, with 256m, i've never ran out of memory (no swap), even if i do make -j
100 bzImage and such things.
