Swap fails to mount at boot


Hello all,

I just installed Arch, and upon booting, when it comes to mounting the swap, it says [Fail].

I'm somewhat new to linux, but have expirence in Slackware. I've tried doing research in the online documentation, looking at the fstab(at least I think thats the file) config file, and the man pages, but I've found I can not do this myself.

This is a new install, I havn't even gave root a password yet.

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure the swap patition has been formatted correctly (as type Linux Swap)? this would be the first thing i checked.

Show a copy of your /etc/fstab file if you don't mind (without any passwords in case you have them)
