a) What OS?
b) Are you sure you actually created a partition for swap on the machine with 1GB of physical RAM?

That is a very strange swap entry. You're using a UFS filesystem for swap? And instructing your system to run fsck on it?

To give you a working example to look at, here's mine (taken from /etc/fstab):
Code:
# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump    Pass#
/dev/ad0s1b             none            swap    sw              0       0

My whole file system is ufs

# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass#
/dev/ad0s1a / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/ad0s1h /home ufs rw,userquota,groupquota 2 2
/dev/ad0s1d /tmp ufs rw 2 2
/dev/ad0s1e /usr ufs rw,userquota,groupquota 2 2
/dev/ad0s1f /var ufs rw 2 2
/dev/ad0s1g swap ufs rw 2 2
/dev/ad3s1d /drive2 ufs rw 2 2

Should another fs be used? bsd standard fs is ufs so its what I used...It certainly runs a lot slower then having linux
