No, you're confusing Hurd and Grub partition naming system : Hurd partitions are
named sn where n is the number of the partition *beginning from 1*. And IDE
drives are named hdn where n is the partition number *beginning from 0*.  So your
/dev/hda1 swap partition, first partition on your first IDE drive, is hd0s1 under
the Hurd.

If you're still confused, have a look at the easy guide which probably explains
all this much better than I ever could ;-).
