That's my title - I'm still working my way into it, and I'm learning as fast
as I can.

Actually, no, I didn't know that.  The last kernel I was familiar with (for
about six months) was pre-2.0.

Does that mean (and this applies to another thread along this line that's
also going on around here I think) that we don't need a swap partition at
all?  Is the swap file automatic, or do we have to specify it (yeah, I know,
rtfm, but where is t.f.m.?).
