	If fstab says something like "LABEL=SWAP-hda6         swap" then you
are going to need this command:

	mkswap -L SWAP-hda6 /dev/hda6

	If you don't include the "label" option to label the swap space, it
won't be able to find the swap space based on the label name.  I've run
into this a couple of times where something has blipped the swap label
and then, no more swap on next reboot.
