swap-space fstab problem
I am new to Linux, and have purchased, and am having trouble enabling the swap partition on my mandrake 9.0 installation. The problem seems to be in 'fstab'. When linux is booting, an error appears invlaid argument whilst trying to mount the swap space (I think that's what its trying to do). What is the correct syntax for a swap entry in fstab?
The system has already been installed, and otherwise seems to be functioning fine. There is no Windows installation on the box.
The problem is kind of frustrating, as the machine is reasonably speced, but when there are a few big apps open, it tends to grind to a halt.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
