ANSWERED: Do I have to change the size of my swap partition if I add RAM?

I plan to add 256mb to my 128mb machine. Do I need to resize my swap partition?

Currently the partition is 256mb.

i don't think is recomended to keep the size double that of the RAM, but it is not mandatory, its ok to keep a reasonable size for /swap.
