Ouch. You really, really, don't want to be using any CF storage as a swap
partition. If you're just running a front end, you don't need swap, so turn
it off. If you do need swap, it's easier to just add more RAM instead.
 Exception might be if you're thinking of suspending the system between uses,
instead of shutting down/rebooting.
