Linux swap / Solaris !

well i am working on fedora 6 and i have 80 gig hard disk i wrote
fsdisk /dev/hda
the the output was:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 2600 20884468+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 2601 2791 1534207+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda3 2792 9729 55729485 83 Linux
i don't fell that the swap partion is right because i work on redhat not Solaris
is this normal or this wrong swap?

It's fine. Swap partitions always look like that in fdisk.

Here's mine:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *           1          10       80293+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2              11        2621    20972857+  83  Linux
/dev/hda3            2622        2752     1052257+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda4            2753       30401   222090592+  83  Linux
