If I remember correctly the swap is recommended to be 2* RAM for suspend 
and hibernate. I have forgotten since long where I found the 
recommendation but have followed it since and have no problems with 
using either function.

Running Kubuntu 8.04 on a Dell Vostro 1400/Inspiron 1420

If it seems to tricky to get said pin out is it not time to contact Dell 
and find a hardware technician in your area?
