   Ahh.  Yeah.  I could see that.  So, instead of making the  
component disks
have one big RAID partition, make one big one and one small one
(for swap).  Set up raid0 and raid1, and swap onto raid1?  I'd have to
manually tell the machine that it's swap was in an usual place, but it
would certainly work.  I'll have to consider that for just the reason  
you mention...
