Hey,
I didn't feel like starting a new thread for this one question ... and I know Saikee is subscribed to this thread ... who better to ask this qestion to?

I am thinkin of addin FC6 as another distro on my comp. I already have Slackware on that HDD. I have a 2 GB swap partition on it. do I need to make another swap partition for FC6 or can I use the same swap partition that Slackware uses?

Thanks.

The 137 Linux distros in my box use one common 1Gb swap.

You don't need to tell the installer where and its name either. Many will find and use it without consulting you.

If you make another Swap you end up with more problems because some distros ask which one it should use, or your permission to combine them etc, etc
