    How do I unmount a swap?

    I am trying to partition my HDD in QTParted, and it doesn't let me reformat or partition my swap. How do I unmount the swap?

    Or perhaps I can boot without swap drive mounted. If so, how?

    look at the list of cheat codes

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    If you've already booted, open a terminal window and type "sudo swapoff -a"

    If you haven't yet booted, use the "noswap" cheatcode at boot time.

    Another possibity is to boot to a windows 98 cd and start the computer with CD support. You can run fdisk from command prompt.
