Your best bet is to set the low and high values to the same (make a permanent swap file). Since you have a good amount of RAM, you probably don't need a large swap file - maybe 100 to 300 MB. I have heard of people with 512mb RAM who don't even have a swap file! It is only necessary if you run out of RAM. Hope this helps!

Ya, daveppeters idea should work just fine. I have never heard anything about invalid swap file amount or whatever though
