swap (noobie question)

I'm thinking of increasing my swap partition, which is easy enough. but I've recently read up on how to also make a swap file. I was wondering; what are the pros and cons of using a swap file vs a swap partition?.

I have been trying for several days to build a LiveCD with the DSL (Damn Small Linux) ISO without any luck. According to what I was told, simply download dsl-1. 5. iso, and burn it to a CD, and it will work.

"bad eip value"

I'm attempting to install linux on an old HP Vectra 500 which orginally had Win95. The box has a P1 processor with 48 Mb ram and a 1. 2 gig HD. I've partitioned the HD with partition magic with a 300 Mb Dos partition (fresh install of Win95), a 200 Mb Linux swap partition, and the remainder as a linux partition.
