2 swap partitions ... Oops

Hi all. This may sound stupid but I have 2 swap partitions. One on each hard drive. I have my system dual booted with win2k and at one time I had Suse on my second hard drive. Well I decided to install Slackware 10 on the free space of drive 1 and use drive 2 a just for storage. While I was installing Slack it told me it found 2 swap partitions one on Drive 1 and Drive 2. I was not paying much attention so I pick them both. Now in Fstab I have 2 references to swap files.

My question is would it be safe for me to comment out the swap file on drive 2? I just dont want to have to install everything over again just because I commented it out.

Thanks for the help

Yes, it is safe to do that or use both (if it ever gets used).
