Hi all,

Thanks for all the replies. Everybody wondered as to why I should be backing 
up a swap partition and explained what a swap partition is. I am aware of 
the fact that swap partition need not be backed up. But, we have a client, 
who backs up swap partition and insists on knowing the reason for the 
failure. One interesting thing I've noticed on the swap partition is that 
apart from a couple of regular files, we have  2 "door files". I want to 
know, if these would cause problem in backing up the partition
