Hmm, my line in /etc/fstab looks like this:
/dev/rz2b none swap sw 0 0
(That's what 'man fstab' said it should look like?)
Still doesn't make any difference to swapctl though... :(

Ok, I've done that.. Still don't see how I can add my swap partition.
Tried 'swapctl -A', 'swapctl -a /dev/rz2b', still says:
swapctl: /dev/rz2b: Device not configured
Although this is using the 1.3_beta kernel that I found at ftp.netbsd.org
somewhere. Maybe it still wants the swap configuration the old way? Ie,
using a swap line in the kernel config file?
I could find out by booting my freshly compiled kernel I guess, but that
kernel can't find clock0 at startup so I get a panic and a halt...
