You really do not need to reinstall, you can find a way to rearrange
partitions. But said that, 512 mega for a swap space (assuming he
choosed twice the amount when he installed) are ok for 1 giga of ram,
linux will tend to use the physical ram anyway, swap space is only for
paging when you are in short of ram, and linux is really good in this
job - from 2.4 kernels afaik you don't need twice the ram as swap space.
Anyway, maybe I do a repartion of the fat32 Maxtor (choose ext3). And if
you really need a swap partition you can even have a second swap
partition (they are cumulative).
