    Help activating Swap partition

    When I was laying out my hard drive for a dual boot with Windows 7 64 bit, I created a swap partition and I just realized I have to activate t first.

    I tried following this guide and I got kind of lost.

    I got to the step 3 without a problem. Here's the info the terminal yielded.
    nick@PUTER:~$ gksu gedit /etc/fstab &
    [1] 5891
    The text editor brought me this:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sda6 during installation
    UUID=9dcaf243-3947-46db-9b16-33c781759ee6 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/sda7 none swap sw 0 0

    A bit lost to say the least now
