I have a fair bit:
$ swapon -s
Filename                                Type            Size    Used    Priority
/dev/sda7                               partition       3542292 31156   -1

So does this need to be bigger than my current memory size (4GB)?

Because then the Ubuntu kernel upgrade messes up the contents of menu.lst :-)
