You can use '/dev/sda2' or find the UUID with 'blkid /dev/sda2'.

UUID=74dd31bc-3c77-41b0-adf4-0c24e0ba1acb   swap   swap  sw 0 0

Thanks Robert.
blkid came up in VL7.0 LIVE with a different value which I used.  Tried both /dev/sda2 and the UUID for the swap line in fstab - still wouldn't accept either user or root passwords!
Will try reinstalling AND adding swap.

Reinstalled using gui installer advanced -with all 3 partitions checked.  Even made sure sda1 was reiserfs - good!
Still will not accept logins for either user or root!
Any suggestions on how to get this working?
