Re: SSD drives under Linux

I recently installed a 60 gb OCZ drive in my older desktop.
Running Fedora 16-64 , I have / on the ssd and /home, /var, /tmp, swap and a vfat partition on a conventional hd.

I tried to follow the above discussion but must admit, most is a bit over my head.

Results of 'fdisk -l" and my fstab file are as follows.
System seems to boot and work ok.

I have only 4 gb ram, is that enough to move temp and var to ram disk? I thought probably not, but if it is, what would be recommended size?

Any suggestions for improvement in configuration or fstab?
