Unhappy Lost Swap Space

I'm running a dual boot system with Redhat 7.0. I have linux on second hard drive. Had linux swap on first drive (hdc2). Had to reinstall windows and lost swap partition. I recreated it with partion magic on the same area of disk 1 (hdc2). But linux doesn't recognize it at boot, and I assume it's useing RAM for swap instead. Is there a way to fix this without a reinstall?

have you tried mkswap command. i think that is the command. you might want to check out your fstab and see if you might need to make changes since you had to recreate swap space on a particular drive. what does your fstab file look like? is it correct for where your swap is at?
