I also add my thanks...I didn't ask, but found this post doing search. I had same problem when I got an error on boot one day.
This worked great for getting swap going for the current session...
sudo mkswap /dev/hda5
sudo swapon /dev/hda5
But, what are the edits for /etc/fstab to make the swap permanent so that its there everytime I reboot?
Right now when I run cat /etc/fstab I get:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#<file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/hda1 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
