Default FC2 Swap Space



My newly installed FC2 systems is running a lot slower than
I expected. I chose the "default" partitioning scheme suggested
during installation. And fdisk now reports this as:

> # fdisk -l
>
> Disk /dev/hda: 41.1 GB, 41174138880 bytes
> 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 5005 cylinders
> Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
>
>    Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

> /dev/hda2              14        4981    39905460   83  Linux
> /dev/hda3            4982        5005      192780   82  Linux swap

Isn't that around 188 Meg of swap space? My system has 128 Meg of memory,
and in the past I seem to remember allocation about four times as much
swap space as I had physical memory, with better results.

Am I nuts? Does swap space only need to be the size of physical memory?
I don't really understand the issues here. Advice?
