so, whats a swapfile and how do i make one. i think i kinda know, but not too sure. i believe it requires a dos partition, which i dont have and cant create due to lack of floppy drives. the problem that im running into is lack of ram. im trying to run it on an IBM 770 Think-pad, and it doesnt have enuff ram. it has 64 and knoppix requires 84 atleast to run KDE or any office suites. i know absolutely nothing about running linux from command line, except for the install command for rpm. or whatever. sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....i forgot what i was tlaking about and im too lazy to re-read so im ending it here.
