Swap partition size

Hi there,

I have 5.5U2 installed on a P120 with 64MB RAM. The systems gots two harddisks in it, both 40 GB. I've installed 5.5 without RAID. Now i removed my second harddrive (HDC). The problem is it has a swap-partion on it. So i put in another harddrive (6 GB), I've made a swap partion on it with size256M, and used mkswap /dev/hdc1. Now i see in phpsysinfo that my disk-swap is 51.15MB?
I dont understand that because i made 256MB. What do i do wrong? How big must the partition be?
