I meant to say "specify usb" during install\setup., but as it's not a
runner, basically mute.
As I will be running MS Win 3D apps using Crossover Linux.
How much swap should be needed\(is it really need) say with a P4
duo-core-quad, possibly min 4gb ddr2 ram.
Should it go on a partition with the main os files usually hda(0-9), or
separate physical drive hdb,c (0-9) etc..
