Adding a swap partition after the fact?
Hi, I just managed to install Ubuntu on a machine with a dual boot with WinXP. When it got to the partitions part there was already a very small partition which I assumed was maybe the bios code or something, which left me 3 others which I designated one for WindowsNT, one for Ubuntu and one shared Fat32. There is plenty of room on each of them (roughly 23gb each). It wouldn't let me create a 5th partition for swap so I figured since I have 512 RAM I'd be ok.
I'm wondering if there is a way now to create an extended partition or something in one of my partitions and designate that to Swap. I'd love to have a 2 gb swap because it seems now programs are just disappearing on me when I get too many going.
I would very much appreciate any help as I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. (4 days total now)
