Ouch. You really, really, don't want to be using any CF storage as a swap 
partition. If you're just running a front end, you don't need swap[1], so turn 
it off. If you do need swap, it's easier to just add more RAM instead.

[1] Exception might be if you're thinking of suspending the system between uses, 
instead of shutting down/rebooting.
