Hmm... for CentOS this would be:

Become root (or use sudo - your choice...)
1. 'mkswap /dev/xxx'
2. Put the entry into /etc/fstab
3. 'swapon -a' (This will ensure that your fstab entry is good.  If it
doesn't load up, something's wrong...)
4. Recreate your initial ramdisk.  You could do something like:
'mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5.img 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5' but
I'd recommend creating a new ramdisk (different filename) and creating a
new test grub entry...
