I don't know about more than 2GB of swap, but, here's top's top from
a similarly endowed machine...
12:16pm up 125 days, 6:45, 1 user, load average: 3.19, 3.00, 2.95
202 processes: 197 sleeping, 4 running, 1 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 0.0% user, 0.0% system, 0.0% nice, 0.1% idle
Mem: 2010080K av, 2006880K used, 3200K free, 6060K shrd, 535920K buff
Swap: 2097136K av, 5000K used, 2092136K free 1157648K cached
Note the swap figure. :-)
