Guess what? According to a comment I just read today, that's not
possible. The alternative is to put a very small swap partition on the
same disk as root (say, 4MB) and put a larger one on a second disk. This
will require a custom kernel, though; there are examples in
sys/arch/mac68k/conf that you can look at (I think).
