Swap space on squid boxes

Hi all,
        I am about to set up a dedicated cache box running Squid on a Dec Alpha.
It will be large scale with around 20GB of disk and 512 MB RAM. I am
currently configuring the system and trying to work out how much swap space
to assign. Given that Squid performs badly with swapping (hence so much
RAM) I figure I do not need as much swap as in a conventional system and
that the space is better given over to the cache.

        Wondering what sort of ratios people usually run for their dedicated cache
boxes in terms of mem/swap???

Comments appreciated.
