Hi there,

You could try booting into rescue mode from the installation
CD and redo the swap preparation step:

mkswap /dev/<your swap partition>

Also, while you're there you could comment out the swap line
in your /etc/fstab file so that swap is not mounted on boot.
This will let you try to start swap manually, with the swapon
command.   Once it works without a problem you can reset
the /etc/fstab file so that it is mounted each boot.

Good luck,
