Re: Lower memory install tip (example from yesterday's meeting)

Other distros allow you to open a command-line virtual terminal during installation to activate the swap partition, e.g., by hitting the Ctl-Alt-F2 keyboard combination, becoming the root user if not already, and then entering 'swapon /dev/sda2'.

Yes, if the full hard-drive distro's installation process is terminal-based (e.g., Slackware, Arch, Debian's non-GUI choices), you would instead hit the Alt-F2 keybd combo *omitting* the "Ctl-", before performing the next step(s) of activating the hard drive's swap partition .

Oops, I mistakenly reversed the order of the first two references... corrected to
