I just read the "386/ix Network Connections Facilities Release Notes - Release
2.0".  The next to last item in the list of bugs is "Swap devices cannot be
remote...".  So much for that idea.  How about my other idea: will the kernel
support the MEMRANGE no-DMA parameter in /etc/default/boot without any
assistance from the disk driver?
