As the largest IDE drive likely to be available for a while is 500GB I normally allow enough swapspace to add a 500GB "B" drive at a later stage. That way there will be no need to faff around trying to increase the swap to add a second big drive.

Therefore, for a 300GB drive I would allow 400mb swap (300+500/2=400).

I'm assuming that swap space can only be allocated on mfsrestore?
Yes, and although you can fairly easily combine the 'spare' root partition (7) with the existing swap (8) to increase the space by 128mb that will only allow you to add an extra 250GB.

I guess you might be able to nick a bit (maybe 50mb) of /var (9) as well, but you'd have to be careful to leave enough space for your hacks, TiVoWeb and any temporary system files - eg. the downloaded guide data 'slice' files - that need to go there.
