if it isn't in /etc/fstab, swapon wouldn't know to look for /dev/hda1
(swapon -a is run, which means 'scan /etc/fstab and find all swap
partitions and enable them).

Let's see if we can find the problem:

reboot the system, at the lilo prompt type:
	lfskernel init=/bin/bash

When you're in the shell, enter the /dev directory and check to see if you
have the hda1, hda2 and such files (and make sure they're named named
something like hda1- hda2-)
