Let's call that not an option. It's doable, but not worth it. I have no
cdrom, and I've got things setup the way I like it. I can make more
room, another 500MB easily, up to 1GB, but how much space am I gonna
need ?!?

Why the worry about swap, you gonna suggest staroffice? :P I've got a
600 MB swap, and I've never used more than 50 MB. It was 220, but i
started messing with swsusp. I could almost use that old swap partition
as a kernel compiling space...
