here is my partition table...in this order...
Extended dos
Logical dos D: 800 mgs (for windows swap)
non-dos linux swap 400 mgs
non-dos linux native 5gigs
Logical dos E: appox 5gigs
Logical dos F: appox 5gigs
Primary dos C: 2gigs for win98
Here is my Question: In the D: properties diologue box, the drive is empty...In the virtual memory diologue box it says 0 mgs free, therefore; I can't create a static swap. How can this be?

It seems you feel you have the D drive sub-partitioned so that there is a separate section reserved for your Windows swap file. Don’t have the slightest idea how you might have done that. It appears your computer doesn’t either as Linux isn’t making space available for your swap file.

I haven’t worked with Linux but I suspect there is something with how you have it or your Linux swap set up that is causing Windows to report no space left on the drive.

If you are using any part of your swap file on a regular basis your best bang for the buck would be another stick of RAM. If you need a 800Mb swap file you REALLY need some RAM.
