   The error message is "swfree error 6" I think - [...]

This is generally caused by a combination of two things.

1) If you have `swap on sd0b' in your kernel config, then it will
always try to get swap from there.  If you use `swap generic', it
should switch to the `b' partition of whatever drive you booted from.

2) If the primary (first) swap partition is not configured (i.e. the
device doesn't exist, or the partition is unavailable), then the
kernel would panic.

The latter problem has been fixed.  The former is really a bug in
your config file.
