Increasing swap space


Hi,
I have installed linux 9 Dual Booting with Windows 2000 on my Hdd
( 20 GB ) with 128 Mb Ram and now i want to upgrade my Ram to
512 Mb. So, in order to do this how could i increase my existing swap
space of 512 Mb to 1024 Mb.
My questions to all of you is that, there is any way through which we
could increase the Swap space without reinstalling the linux Box again.




regards
Rupesh

Sure you can do it if you have extra unpartitioned space on the drive or you shrink an existing partition but there should be no need to do it. You already have 512mb swap and if you upgrade to 512mb ram then you will have available 1gb ram + swap and that is more than enough for everyday normal use.
