Subject: swap?

I've recently switched to Gentoo, and the server was running fine until there was
a problem with SWAP.

Gentoo Server Performance decreased and of course Physical Memory was high and
warning was sent to root, me.

I've correctly mkswap /dev/hda2
and correctly swapon -a

However, it gives me resource busy.

Also, when I do


it shows no swap is used even though physical memory level is 98%.

Of course, the system gets unstable and forces me to shutdown some services,
which brings down to about 95%.
Why doesn't Gentoo utilitze swap?

also, I'm only running mysql, http, vsftpd.
What is the problem with Gentoo performance, whenever I add people and put a
quota on, and restart quota service? The it eats Memory.
