the swap is a Virtual Memory Partition, similar to the page file in Windows, if its not there there you'll need to make it. It should be 1.5* or greater to the amount of ram installed on your machine, if your unsure of how to do this with a Linux boot disk, and it is a fresh install, reinstall and let Fedora automatically partition your drive for you.
