We have a lot of DOS PCs in labs and etc.

The diskless FreeBSD+XFree would be a nice X server if it could swap to DOS
file system file. Can FreeBSD use DOS file as SWAP space?

I have tested a little FreeBSD 2.0.5 diskless and it seems very nice! Only
problem I see at his moment is the swap over network. It is too slow and
makes too heavy load to the the "swap server" . The local disk should be
used for swap.

Usually I cannot install FreeBSD swap partition to the lab or personal DOS
PCs, because the disks are full and the "DOS people" do not allow me to do
