:-) Ive seen so many servers setup like this, I'm not sure of the reason but
I would hazard it has some reference to DOS not supporting large drives on
single partition .

As for swap file, I read somewhere that these should be placed on their own
unpartitioned drive, disk I/O access for memory swapping is then seperated
from other disk I/O / OS functions in much the same way as a dedicated drive
offers better performance for databases.
