PLEASE *SEPARATE* your replies from quoted messages.  It's hard to read
when you run your reply into the middle of the quoted text.  Leave a
blank line between them.

Sorry, will try to be more attetive in the future.

Reading this list is one place.  I don't recall where I found out about
how the hibernating did its trick, it was too long ago.  Though
observing what my PC does while booting up, after using hibernation, and
not, you can work these things out for yourself.  It might be worth
looking at the mkswap man file, but I'm not using FC6, at the moment, to
see if it's been updated with this information.

If that's a partition, then an entry like the following in your fstab
file should let you use it as your swap space:

/dev/hda2         swap          swap    defaults        0 0

As I've shown above, *instead* of something like:

LABEL=SWAP-hda2  swap          swap    defaults        0 0

"Comment out" any other swap lines, and just try one at a time.

Here are the contents of my fstab:

LABEL=/                 /                       ext2    defaults        1 1
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hda2         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

Any changes you would make to this with the limited info you have?
