How set up ReadyBoost (equivilent) on Xubuntu laptop?

I'm setting up an old Thinkpad 600e laptop using Xubuntu. The machine has only 160MB of memory (all I could find - 32MB onboard, + 2 x 64MB expansions), so it's paging like mad during normal use.

"How to: ReadyBoost with Ubuntu Linux

mind you, Ubuntu, even in its 'lightest' flavor with the Xfce desktop environment is a rather heavy weight linux distro compared to DSL or Puppy."

You can simply create and activate a swap partition on the flash drive, but keep in mind that if you do this, your computer will crash if the flash drive is unplugged.
