[Xen-users] How to setup swap

Hi All,

I could not locate the info & syntax to setup swap partition in domU.

I've setup the fstab file like that after having created a LV for it but
I don't know how to instruct xen to use it:.
I feel I have to somehow set it in the VM file but how ?

Of course I've run the mkswap and tried swapon -a but I get the obvious
message bellow as it cannot read real device:

[root@VSI5G-111-Fc4 ~]# swapon -a
swapon: cannot stat /dev/VolGroup00/SwapVM1: No such file or directory
[root@VSI5G-111-Fc4 ~]#

Any ideas ?

/dev/sda1               /                       ext3    defaults 1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults 0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults 0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/SwapVM1 swap                    swap    default  0 0
