Odd, but perhaps they were in that order on the disk.

That's normal, it's trying to look for your swap on the root partition.
Boot it up with something like "linux emergency root=/dev/hda2",
change the root partition to read-write with
mount -n -o remount,rw /
edit /etc/fstab to have swap on /dev/hda3, / on /dev/hda2,
change the root back to read-only with
mount -n -o remount,ro /
and it should be fixed.
