RH 7.3 wont install with a SWap

Whenever i add a partition for the swap file[after the mount point] during that part of the install, it rejects the process. Yet if i just give the whole partition over to the install with no swap[after display of warning] it installs fine. The install is to the first partition on the drive, and will dual boot with Win2k, 2K being set up on the 3rd partition.
What am i missing?
I've tried forcing as a primary, this is rejected too. Using Disk Druid to set the partitions up on free space

What's the error you get? Maybe you see an 1024 cylinder warning? In such case create a wap partition at the end of the drive and main Linux one between Windows and swap.
