    Yes, but I doubt you'd ever need more than 1 Gig. While it's better than the Android apps to SD option, it's still not 100% effective, so you still have some of the app on the true internal memory, plus data, so you still run out of space eventually...

    I've managed 200+ apps, with about 50 or 60 Meg of free space still on the phone...

    Backup anything of value on your SD card, because repartioning will wipe it.
    You can then use either ROM Manager or recovery to make the partition.
    The steps vary, depending on which recovery you have...

    Boot into recovery - you should have more options. Which recovery do you use?

    You don't need any swap...

    Clockwork will let you create upto 4GB partition via recovery (in the advanced options). Clockwork also uses ext3 as default, so you won't need to upgrade (Among RA uses ext2).

    The Nexus One is known for having issues with memory space for apps. The Android way of moving apps to the SD is only partially effective because it treats the SD as external storage (because of it's FAT file system). A better option is to create an EXT partition on the SD, and trick Android into thinking it's part of the internal storage...
    now this is freakin cool!

    Does this achieve the same results as an application like move2sd enabler?
    I would assume as well that the same risks of moving certain apps to the SD card are inherent here as well - Do you have to pay special attention to the apps and where they are stored?
