You may need something like this in your kernel config (1.0 config
syntax, may have changed with

config netbsd root on wd0 swap on wd0 and wd1

Also, did you add /dev/wd1b to your fstab?  I remember seeing in
either the swapon(8) or fstab(5) manpage that swapon will only
activate swapping on partitions that have the flag 'sw' in /etc/fstab,
i.e. try adding the line:

/dev/wd1b none swap sw

...and see if that helps.
