That is what I was thinking.  The system seemed to be faster the first 
time I had it setup.  From my searching it looks like the ULI controller 
on my mother board is not supported and it probably will not give me 
that big of a performance boost anyway.

Would it be a good idea to put the swap on the LVM?
