Next was the swap directories. It had non-sense addresses for both swap directories. Really BAD! I changed it by erasing the /dev/hda swap and then re-writing the /dev/hdb3 SWAP just like that. This has been working and fstab-synch has not messed with it.
Well known bug in FC4 Anaconda.  Search bugzilla for details.  There are
also posts relating to the condition at fedoraforum.org, if you're
interested.

Well I think I will try to get the file fixed up properly and watching it every day see if it stays in good shape. Every new fangangle has 6 side effects that are BAD.

The swap label bug affects FC4 only at install time.  fstab-sync won't
mess with it going forward.

By the way, you should probably check to make sure swap is working.

grep SwapTotal /proc/meminfo

Verify a nonzero result.

   I used top and it lists the proper size swap file which is mounted.

PS: It's not just a FC4 problem. I looked at the /etc/fstab on my FC5 and it is, if anything worse than FC4!
