I think it's worth mentioning that you need to edit boot/servers.boot script
(in your hurd partition.. you can do that from in linux) to setup the swap..
It took me a fair while to figure this out ;-)

It should be mentioned in the install docs too me thinks.

I was having unhandled page faults (unrecoverable) when I didn't have a swap
partition.. since I set that up it seems to be working a bit better, but my
translators keep dying on me now.. gonna try reinstalling again ;-)
