The swap advice is obsolete and deprecated.  With only two drives, you'll
have to decide whether to RAID1 or not.

I'm a firm believer that any world-writable directory ( /tmp, /var/tmp )
should be a separate filesystem w/ rw,noexec,nosuid. I think that an 8GB
swap partition on each drive would be more than enough.  You can
extrapolate from this.
