making swap partition on USB pendrive is at least stupid. if you won't
swap at all - wasted space.
If you will it would be so slow and wear USB pendrive so quickly that you
certainly don't want this.
bsdlabel -w device
bsdabel -e device and make "a" partition start from 0 to end, 4.2BSD
and put everything in one partition.
make heavy use of tmpfs, make sure noatime is put in fstab to limit writes
