Someone else said using IDs in fstab only works with ext2/3, obviously

from man mount:
It is possible to indicate a block special device using its volume
label or UUID (see the -L and -U options below).
One can set such a label for ext2 or ext3 using the e2label(8) utility,
or for XFS using xfs_admin(8), or for reiserfs using reiserfstune(8).
(using this thread now, one thread by topic ...)
My system seems to be one of those that periodically has the drive
assignments changed so I am switching over to using LABEL=...
I've been trying to find what the UUID of my swap file is but can't find it,
been searching with Google for instructions but nothing works to get it.
It's not listed under /dev/disk/by-uid either. I'm using ext3 file system
but I believe swap is entirely different anyways.
Should I somehow redo the swap partition specifying for it to create a UUID
