pc i am using for web/ftp/storage has 2GB of ram in there - and freebsd selects 4gb for swap file, is this too much or as it should be ?

I tend to stick with the 2x RAM rule, though I have had a server running happily on 2MB of SWAP. If you are pressed for space 1.5x should see you well too.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
