The OS uses the swap partition as 'virtual RAM' according to its own rules, which are completely transparent to the user. As far as I know, there is no penalty, speed or otherwise, for having a swap partition that's never used, except the loss of room on the hard drive.

Thanks, and I'm soo enjoying Puppy. When gxine worked for live365.com that really made my day. And the help file is dynamic! New apps have their links added there?! Fantastic I'd say. Tuxfiles, and Rute, and help, gee I've all this info to peruse .. Smile Plus the info on this forum is fantastic. I'd say sometimes randomly reading posts I learn just as much as when I try to find something specific!
If I may speak for everyone who tries to help out in the forum, thanks! Smile
