It looks like you have not formatted the swap partition with "mkswap 
/dev/hda2" before running swapon. Please verify that you have a non-zero 
amount of swap available with the "free" command.

Pretty sure formatted the swap partition, but formatted it again.
Free gives total of swap 204112 total, used 80 and free 204032, seems ok to me. But, still same write error.
