Incidentally, Red Hat as of about 7.0 began insisting on swap space at least 
as large as twice RAM size.  In my case on my 512MB RAM notebook, that meant 
it wanted 1GB swap.  If you upgrade your RAM you could get into trouble.  In 
that case, you create a swap file on one of your other partitions that the 
kernel can use.
