    If you really need a swap file to keep your computer up and running have a look here: http://www.stack.nl/~galactus/remailers/wipeswap.html
    I have the size of my swap file set to zero, but it takes a fair amount of RAM to achieve this or limits you in your possibilities to run a lot of applications.

    Regards,

    Pieter
