Snag an install CD of a distro, or maybe tomsrtbt. If its a distro CD, usually CTRL+ALT+F2 will get you to a shell. Boot the machine with that, mount your linux partition manually (if your root RH partition is ext3, then Tom's rtbt won't cut it), and then run mkswap on the swap partition. Its odd that a swap partition was corrupted, but it can happen. If that doesn't work... do all of the same, but instead edit that partition out of /etc/fstab. That should at least allow your system to boot long enough to re-format that whole puppy... or you can just run without a swap partition... not necessarily dangerous, just not very stable either.
If you need any more specifics to that, just post back,
