Thank for your information.
The pagefile.sys can be easily recreate, it not an issue.

What I found is that the parted is so flexible that sometimes we could
possible do something wrong with it.

My last experience is to resize my Windows200 FAT32 partition and create a
boot partition for linux. 

Originally, (the start end just for illustration purpose)
1          0.031 - 10000   FAT    lba, A
2          10000 - 20000   FAT            ; extend partition

1          52 - 10000      FAT   lba, A
2        10000 - 20000     FAT           ; extend partition
3          0.031 - 51.999  ext2

Windows 2000 seem to be confused. Even though no error message saying
partition having problem, the Windows 2000 can not run properly. It's
crawling at the startup phase and keep shutdown the machine before get to
the user desktop.

Could it possible to sort and the minor in partition table, so that the
primary partition start-end in acending order?

Yes.  There is really nothing we can do about this :/
(long story...)

I don't have Windows 2000.  Does Windows 2000 have an option
to turn the swap file off?  Can it recover from the fragmented
swapfile, or does it cause big problems?

If so, then I can at least add information in the documentation...
