Disabling Swap Activation Message

I installed Debian Lenny on my PC (/dev/hda1) without any swap partition. I recompiled my kernel to boot without using an initrd.
Now when I boot to my base system, I still see following messages from the init scripts on my console:
Activating swap...Done
Activating swapfile sawp...Done
After doing a find it seems that these messages are spitted out by scripts mountall.sh and checkroot.sh files in /etc/init.d/ directory.
My question is what is the best way to disable these messages and the associated function with those messages?
Should I just comment out the relevant swap portition in those two init files?
Here are contents of my fstab file:
# less /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda1       /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hdb        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/etc/fstab (END)
Here is my drive structure:
debian:/etc/init.d# fdisk -l /dev/hda
