Report release number, please. Swep space is automatically created as "file"
in the directory you downloaded the archives. If you can use, instead, a true
dedicated swap partition, then enter in maintance mode and try:

                # mkswap /dev/... ; sync; swapon /dev/...
                # /etc/rc.prep-floppy


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
