With old kernels (<= 2.0.x), one swap partition couldn't be greater than
128MB, but with newer ones this limitation has vanished (I don't know what
the current limit is, if any). Even with old kernels it was possible to
use multiple swap partitions.

   The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should, therefore, be
   regarded as a criminal offence.                  -- Edsger W. Dijkstra
