Hi Paul,

Mount your root filesystem and modify the /etc/fstab to comment out
all swap lines.   Reboot,  no swap partitions will be used and you can
then figure things out and add a  proper swap entry.

Use the "linux rescue" feature of CD1 to boot and mount your hard drive.
Or  add  "init=/bin/sh" to the kernel boot line via grub, (this may require a
"mount / -oremount,rw"  after getting a command prompt). 

Good Luck,
Sean
