    What was the error?

    Anyway - with that much RAM you won't notice it at first. Once you've got everything working fine I can assist with your setup of the swap if you need help. Kind of curious though why it didn't work though!
    Well, I'm out of the live CD now, so I can't post the error message.
    I don't plan to do hibernation-I've heard it can be really unreliable. I'm currently using the tutorial on the SwapFaq page.
    Edit: I found out how to utilize the swap space.
    I was in GParted, right clicked on my swap space, and selected "Swapon."
    I then went to terminal and typed in:
    free -m
    And, I got this:
                        total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:                7979       7261        717          0         35       1911
    -/+ buffers/cache:  5314       2665
    Swap:              16378          0      16378
    So, my swap isn't being used at the moment, but it's nice to know it's there when I need it.

    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.
