CCing because I think it may be appropriate to modify the book?

The sample /etc/fstab in chapter 8 has the mount point listed as swap, the man 
page says:

 The  second field, (fs_file), describes the mount point for the filesystem.  For 
swap partitions,
       this field should be specified as `none'. If the name of the mount point  
contains  spaces  these
       can be escaped as `\040'.
