6 Yes. Or, temporarily, the 'swapoff' command.

11 I think it might work without. If you have hda1=boot, hda2=root, hda3=swap,
12 you could delete hda3 and hda2 with [c]fdisk and make hda2 the size of
13 hda2+hda3, then use resize2fs to increase the size of hda2. Increasing a
14 file system's size works online nowadays. I don't think it would work with
15 hda2=swap and hda3=root, but I'm not sure.
17 Using LVM, things would be easier :)
