I am using fdisk to partition teh the HD, but when I using:
"mke2fs -j /dev/discs/disc0/part1", it seems that not work ( is there any size limitation? part1 over 100G)

Hi and sorry my english.

Cannot format:
Not enough memory for format ext3 partition. Create, format and add swap partition to system before format ext3 partition(s).

swap partition size: the mkswap can format 1GB size swap but if you add this "swapon .." to system, use only 512MB (check this: $ free). I advise to create 512 MB size swap partition. If the swap is not enough for any process, you can create other swap partition or swap file ( /opt/swapfile or any: create : dd
format: mkswap /opt/swapfile, add to system: swapon /opt/swapfile)
I use 1GB size swap (256MB - on cf card, 512MB - on usb hdd and 256MB on usb hdd ext3 part (swapfile)).
If you use p2p sw (enhanced-ctorrent), any e-ct process uses 3MB...50MB memory.

Bye, George
