    I only have 32 mb, but I see that BlackDroid suggested 256 mb. How will this difference effect my phone? I partitioned my sdcard using the Rom Manager app and it only had two options for swap size, 32 mb or 64 mb.

    I don't think you would ever need more that 64MB for swap. Or are you referring to storage space for apps?

    Nope, swap size. I think I set aside 512 mb for the apps. I've been running all day with 64 mb of swap with no problems, but I just read a post by blackdroid where he suggested using so much more. Sounds like I'm good to go at 64. Thanks for the reply!

    Yeah you just have to realize how swap works, it's only relevant when your phone is almost completely out of RAM. I highly doubt you're ever gonna run 320MB+ worth of apps concurrently, so 64MB is just fine.
