I dont know if this has always been the case, but someone in our office (new 
to FreeBSD) was trying to install 5.1 with the swap partion first. He tried 
very hard for hours, but he couldnt get it to work (even after I told him try 
having the swap partion second instead). Is it documented that having the 
swap partion first is bad, or is it simply a bug (errata?).
