Since we're on the question of swap sizes, I'm a little confused about this.  Everything I've read says Linux won't use anything bigger then a 128MB swap, yet one of the vendors who sells preconfigured Linux systems says their standard partitioning gives a 258MB (or something like that) swap partition.  That didn't make sense to me.  Is the 128MB figure outdated with newer kernels?
