So, you don't have swap enabled. Is this because you never configured

What does /etc/fstab contain? In particular, does it have any references
to swap? Has the partition you intend to use for swap (/dev/hda2?) been
formatted as such with mkswap? Are there any message in dmesg about
swap? What happens if you do "/sbin/swapon -a"?
