Is it that they want to use as a mini-server. There is 4Gb of RAM(I will add) and have stuck SD USB flash drive 16GB. Really want to make her a swap partition to the total number of available memory increased to 20Gb. Have a few questions:

1. What happens if you remove the stick?)
2. Heard about a limit on the number of write cycles for flash drives. Do not kill do it very quickly in such use?
3. Somebody ACTUALLY took out a swap on the flash. What results on speed/reliability?
4. Is it possible to use two swap partitions, one on flash (main), the other on the HDD. And will there be a second, if you remove the stick?

Percent is the Intel® Atom™ Processor 330 (1M Cache, 1.60 GHz, 533 MHz FSB)

The conclusion is obvious from the article about ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReadyBoostwhere they say about the benefits of flash memory.
Many do throw off library on a flash drive under Linux.
And if you use the disk as swap, we will free screw, and raise the speed of access randomname part of the swap, which is very important.

Who to you such told? Don't want to think that it is your own idea.

if enough of the Opera, the swap is in principle not necessary, especially for a netbook IMHO!

it is possible, though much. Can priorities be set when mounting. Watch mana to mount and swapon.

my answer to you immediately: NO. If only because you don't understand the purpose of the swap. This is not an extension of OP, it's a warehouse, where temporarily demolished all the junk and then get back if necessary.
If in the office every day all the computers at the end of the day to collect, count, seal and hide in the warehouse, and in the morning in reverse order — then here's what you're trying to do. You can, of course, but half a day will be spent on this tape, and this time will be taken from actual work.
