If you follow the guide on here to root it you can flash the MCR 3.1 rom. That has A2SD in it if you select the one that includes it to download.

The recovery that is part of the rooting guide has a menu that will partition your sd card for you.

I chose swap=0 ext=512 and fat32= remaining space. If you do that though make sure you backup your sd card as it will wipe all data off it. :)

And make sure you put your EXT partition at the end of the card, otherwise A2SD will not work properly.

Let me see if i understood:

In the menu where i make the partition in make first de swap, than the fat32 and finnaly the ext? is it?

Thanks for the help!!!

Well the way i suggested does make sure it goes that way. Although i suppose if your going down the Gparted/LiveCD route then it's useful to know.
