Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The first thing you would have to do is create/borrow space from another partition either directly in front or behind your swap partition before you can resize the swap partition.
Any time you mess the the partitions the likely hood that things can go wrong is greatly augmented. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. Oh did I mention backup your work?
1) how much ram do you have?
2) what is your swap partition size?
I originally had 2:1 ratio. Now I have 1.5:1 ratio. I use very little swap on my system. if you are using swap file extensively you may want to consider upgrading ram. I have 768 mb of ram and use only about 10-80 meg of swap on a heavily loaded system.
Nope, I haven't really notice any swapping. Increasing physical memory is not an option, we don't have any spare DIMM chips laying around. I just thought it would be a good idea to increase the SWAP size to 2.5 the size of the physical ram.
i wanted a dual boot system with win xp and knoppix on same physical drive.
i partitioned my hard drive to install knoppix
but i installed a second physical drive and put knoppix on it
i increased the winxp partition with qtparted but stupid windows still says its the smaller sized partition, the question is how do i return
my winxp partition to its origanal size?
