Talking Installation reminder...

I was having installation problems with Red Hat 7.2.. It took nearly 14 hours to just take care of copying the installation files to the drive... then another 10 hours to finish the rpm transaction prep...

Well, dummy me forgot to setup a swap partition...

Anyways. Reminder: ALWAYS setup a swap partition... generally 150mb or so or more.
