mount point doesn't exist

This is the content of my /etc/fstab. I freshly installed fedora core 4 again.

# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
/dev/devpts             /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
/dev/shm                /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/proc               /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
/dev/sys                /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
0xB7AA  0x8   swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/fd0                /media/floppy           auto    pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder       auto    pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
It says mount point 0 doesn't exist. I tried removing the line starting with LABEL. When I booted again, it said seventh line of fstab is bad. What is the problem?

This does not look right;
0xB7AA  0x8   swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
It should look like;
LABEL=SWAP-sda5         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
What is the label on the swap partition?? Use the typed command parted -l to find out, use swapon to change the swap partition label if need be, for the details review;

man parted
man swapon
