[Solved] Add Swap File (not partition) option to Installation Guide

What do you think about adding an option of creating a Swap File to the Installation Guide on Wiki. I couldn't find any information regarding SWAP File on that page, and all the example partitions include a SWAP partition, as well as all tutorial I found online. As SSDs become mainstream, some people may want to choose that file option themselves. I think it's a little hard for newbies (like myself) to find that kind of information (file vs partition) if we don't put a link somewhere. I don't have the permission to edit that page, so if you too think it's reasonable, please edit it. Thanks!

There is a note on the page in the partitioning section:

Wiki wrote:

Swap space can be set on a swap file for file systems supporting it.

that links to the swap file information...
