Can you provide more info e.g. contents of your /etc/fstab and details of the exact partition that you have set aside for swap.

Sir,

Swap problem resolved by using ln command i have just liked the swap area as under :-

1. Login - root
2. fdisk - shown the partition table
2. ln - just given command to link the hda
alloted to swap
syntax - ln -s /dev/hda6 /dev/swap
