Hey there..

I have just added a HDD to my server..  The 28meg swap partition on the 1.2 gig is fine still but the new 90meg swap partition on the 3.2 is not working??

I need to fix this so I can remove the 1.2 from the PC..  Please help!

Your information is not very detailed, so I can only run a general checklist of the procedure.

Did you run mkswap on the new partition?
Did you add a line to your /etc/fstab ?
Do you have swapon -a in your startup script?

If you did all these steps, which one did fail, and what error messages do you get?
