I have a system memory dump in my swap space; how do I delete it? (Old Sco Unix)

Go into single-user mode (NEVER try this in multi-user mode!). Then copy something into your swap space. The suggested method is:

dd if=/etc/termcap of=/dev/swap count=100

Unix 3.2v4.0 and later will ask at boot up and will do this removal for you if you want it to.
