Swap on dedicated hard drive help
I have a small internal hard drive I would like to use as dedicated swap space. My thinking is that this will increase performance over swap on a partition on my primary HD. However, my small tower has room for only one HD.
My solution is to get a 3.5" adapter to place the drive into my spare 5.25" bay. This would necessitate using this HD as a slave on my secondary IDE channel (with the CD drive as the master).
Would Linux have any issues using swap that isn't on the primary IDE channel, and the only swap space for the system? :confused:
