Construct swap only HDD

I desire to set up a swap of a single partition linux type 82 swap file on a HDD with no other partitions or boot MBR and no data.

Is this possible with arch 0.5 installCD?

Re: Construct swap only HDD

why don't you create them in the running system that is going to use them? it's easier than from the installer-cd, that is a little handicaped compared to a fully setup running system

one hint: make more smaller partitions instead of one big one, if your hdd is bigger than 512mb - you get better performance

i gave my 0.5 cd someone, as i dont longer needed it, so i cannot test, if all needed tools are on it, but it should be the case

good luck
