I'm suprised no one has done the obvious: invite him to the
InstallFest! (well, maybe someone has, I wasn't willing to wade through
the ~150 response messages to the article).  That's the reason
InstallFests exist, right?  So that people like Steve can say "what's
this about partitioning my hard disk?" and someone will cheerfully help
him, making sure that he sets up a swap partition appropriate to his
machine in the process?
