Am I checking my ram in the wrong place I go to system tools
system monitor and it only shows that I have 3.2gb of ram but my machine has 8gb of ram installed on it.

Could I have done something wrong with the swap drive making it too large somehow?
If I have a 500gb hard drive what is the ideal partition setup for the drive?

Is it possible to do dual monitors with paldo? my secondary monitor would be a wacom cintiq tablet where I can draw on the screen. right now the wacom cintiq screen does not show up at all.

How is extix different than paldo? can I do dual monitors on it easier?

You need to install the x86_64 version of paldo to be able to use all your RAM, the x86 version does not support more than 3.2 GB.

Yes, dual monitors are supported by paldo. You should be able to configure your second display in GNOME in System->Preferences->Display.
