Hi there,

I have Backtrack 5 RC3 installed encrypted persistent on a 32GB Micro USB. I have chosen to not use swap partitioning due to some advice from users here and from a friend who said it 'could' shorten the life of the USB device. I was wondering if it's possible to use the swap partition of the HDD in my laptop (running Fedora17) while it is running and whether or not I can have it search for the partition on boot in case I plug the USB into another machine that doesn't have a swap partition present?

Also could anyone tell me the command entry I would need to do to achieve this if it's possible.

Kind regards, Dan
