Marking list as 'all read'

The question about swapping was on the list months ago, and I'm not sure it 
was ever answered. I have spent the last few months researching this, 
sometimes googling for 5-10 hours a day, and no less than 4 hours a day. I 
think I finally came up with a solution:

I upgraded the server (an IBM AT) with lots more RAM. It now has 64K and it 
just flies now. I haven't seen any swapping since. The spec are as follows

IBM AT running 3.77 MHz clock. This is just the front side bus, I don't 
think it has a back side bus. It may not have a front side bus, either. I 
lost the manual.
64K memory.
Advanced SVGA video card, although we run in on a monochrome monitor.
No mouse - I couldn't find where to plug it in.
5 MB Winchester hard drive. It thrashes a lot, but I feel comfortable with 
it. I knocked the whole CPU off of the rack (well, really I forgot to screw 
in the rails for the rack - I made them myself and it's now a 3U 
rack-mounted AT) and it performed great after I shook it up a little bit 
before putting it back in the rack. Boy, I won't do that again! Scary stuff.

I had to build the kernel for our system, for some reason, and had to leave 
out a whole lot of stuff, but we are running a non-standard CentOS 4.4 

Mail flow averages about 1 per month.

Hope this helps.
