Is there any concensus on where abouts on a disk to put your swap?
Is best to make it the last partition, or stick it in the middle
somewhere? Does it really matter? I have two identical machines,
but one seems more sluggish than the other, and the only difference
in the way they were built is that the swap on the slow one is
way at the end of a 72 GB disk. Could this really be an issue?
