"How can you run diskless yet have a swap partition?"

That is why i said "diskless mode".
I did not say diskless client.

I assumed that diskless would be something like Knoppix.
Where you boot and run off the CD.
In Knoppix, if the hard disk has a linux swap partition then it is used.
In Knoppix, (in my experience) you get better performance when
the linux swap partition is being used.

This is how it would be diskless.

No, you don't really need one.

So, it isn't running diskless?
