Hi Guys. Still nothing. I have tried everything.
But I found out that /dev/hda1 or /dev/hda2 don't exist in domU.
Any advice?

Just make things clear:
- dom0 amd64 debian etch
- domU amd64 debian etch
- domU disk config:
- !!!! domU does not have /dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 in /dev directory 

Some other commands on domU (monit1):
/dev/sda1       /       ext3    defaults        1       2
/dev/sda2       none    swap    sw      0       0
devpts          /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0       0
none    /dev/shm        tmpfs   defaults        0       0

monit1:~# cat /proc/partitions
major minor  #blocks  name

   3     2     512000 hda2
   3     1    2097152 hda1

monit1:~# mkswap /dev/hda2
/dev/hda2: No such file or directory

Any advice?
