Maybe I should illustrate also what actually failed with the swapfile setup
from the handbook.

When my /etc/bootptab is as follows:

#----- Start ---

#----- End ---

I get in /var/log/messages, the following lines:
   bootpd[19916]: in entry named ".default", symbol "T129": bad syntax

When I remove the T129 line, I get similar complaint about T128.
So somehow this does not seem to be the right way, is it?

Thanks for help.
