I could use some help with my upgrade to 2004.2 I have a Live cd install but the system is unbootable and I believe it is due to the fact that mac-fdisk will not let me name the swap partition. It insists on naming it B consequently my system is not bootable since it can't find the swap partition.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to resolve this?
Thanks

post the output of mac-fdisk's "p" option, as well as your /etc/fstab

I seriously doubt your root partition is on hda29, and you don't need swap to boot (I don't have swap at all).
