Default RAM upgrade, kernel and swap

So, I just got 2 GB of RAM in the mail. Whoo hoo.

Before I pop these in, soliciting any thoughts about the following:

zcat /proc/config.gz |grep MEM
CONFIG_SHMEM=y
# CONFIG_TINY_SHMEM is not set
# CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM is not set
CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G=y
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G is not set
CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y
CONFIG_SELECT_MEMORY_MODEL=y
CONFIG_FLATMEM_MANUAL=y
# CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM_MANUAL is not set
# CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_MANUAL is not set
CONFIG_FLATMEM=y
CONFIG_FLAT_NODE_MEM_MAP=y
# CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_STATIC is not set
CONFIG_ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=y
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UMEM is not set
# CONFIG_INPUT_FF_MEMLESS is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_HIGHMEM is not set
CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM=y


Name Flags Part Type FS Type [Label]
Size (MB)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
hda1 Boot Primary Linux ext2
256.50 hda2 Primary Linux swap /
Solaris 1024.46 hda3 Primary Linux
ext3 21480.44 hda5 Logical
Linux ReiserFS 28771.84 hda6
Logical Linux ReiserFS 28493.15

IOW, do I need to/should I recompile my kernel or change partition
sizes?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Cheers,

if you don't plan to try suspend-to-disk.
No

even if you plan to try suspend-to-disk it might work with a swapfile. So
still no.
