About the swap problem: post your /etc/fstab. Did you create a swap partition during install? Please post your pc spec.
Thanks for the HowTo. Don't know if I'll be able to use it, but I will learn something from it.

I have an old drive on the PATA that has FC2 i386 that I now use for 32-bit development via chroot. I have two SATA drives on the mobo SATA (VT8237/VT6420) for the 64-bit system. Both drives are partitioned the same way (sdb = sda):
sda6 ~65G (all remaining on 80G drive)
So I used Disk Druid to setup the drive as follows:
sda1/sdb1 = 512M RAID1 = /
sda2+sdb2 = 16G RAID 0 = /usr
sda3+sdb3 = 8G RAID 0 = /var
sda5 and sdb5 = swap
sda6+sdb6 = ~130G RAID 0 = /home
This works very well in FC3 t2 or t3 with a few minor problems I have mentioned. I don't know why the swap isn't working unless it has to do with the "Enabling local filesystem quotas" failing as I mentioned in another post on my early findings.
Thanks for any help. I'm still a bit new to Linux. I may have troubles, but I'd never go back to Windows at this point.
