It would work definitely.  I used to do this on my Zaurus  (same amount
of ram actually) with a CF card.  No panics.  The problem is that even
though flash memory has automatic leveling built in, it still has a
limited number of writes.  I'm not sure what the lifetime of the flash
memory would be if I used it as swap.  But certainly it's something I
want to check into.
