Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you really did format your Windows partition as a Linux swap partition, Windows is probably gone forever. Some of the raw data may still exist on the disk, but without the directory/filetable information, which the format destroyed, recovery is an expensive venture.
As far as the Linux errors go- you've damaged your filesystem(s), and Linux wants you to force a manual check. It looks like you've been dumped to a single-user mode command prompt (the "root@localhost root#"), where you should type "fsck -f" (without the quotes) to attempt a repair.
