    Question changing RAM

    my current RAM is of 64Mb
    I have installed linux on my PC with swap space
    of 128 Mb

    linux adds to the 128 MB swap the new space of the ram module

    e.g:
    current: 64+128

    new: ???+128

    u computer will be faster, cause the access speed of the ram module is much faster than the access speed of the harddisk!
