That is a lot of swap space! Consider how much real (physical) memory
your box has and double it at most for the swap. Still that may be
too much. When I had 32MB mem I still used only 64MB swap. No
problems there!

I started with a lot too. The distros IMHO use too much by default.
Now with 128MB of memory, I only ever see 20MB of it gets used by the
system. So, I have a couple smaller partitions for swap (totalling
only 64MB). I usually turn one of them off though and live with 32MB
