Don't ever ask this question on comp.unix.wizards :-)
Really, the answer depends on what you plan to use it for, and if you
think you'll ever add more disk space.  If you want to play around
with it for now, but don't plan to ever heavily use the system, just
use minimal swap (Hmmm.  I think minimal is == RAM size, but I might
be thinking of a different system).
