My tips on swapfile size: Desktop use no more than 200 megs ever, Server use.. well that depends on how many users and what apps you'll be running.. But you shouldn't ever go by the old thumb rule anymore of double the ram.. its an outdated rule these days.
I had a FTP and NFS server with only 64 megs of RAM and it never touched its swap file which I made 200 megs.. if that tells you anything.
