    Thank you for the quick response. My problem is that I specified the
    swap partition to be on one of the hard drives. If the system was going
    to create a dynamic swap file, shouldn't there be an entry in the fstab,
    or somewhere?
    Just curious..

    Hmmmm... Could be a swap file...

    Might use lsof and grep for those file names to see if anything is
    writing to them
    depending on the timestamps.
