Unhappy Error Enabling Swapdevice


I'm trying to upgrade from RH9 to Fedora Core One.

Install hangs and gives following message:

Error enabling swapdevice hda:3

No such file or directory

This most likely means this swap partition has not been initialised

What does this mean? And, what can I do to overcome the problem?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!?!

Did you create a swap partition during the install?
