[SLUG] swap file creation

hi slugs,
i've deleted/lost the swap partition.
there is room on the HDD for a swap partition, so how does one go about
creating a new swap partition?
ie what's the command to create a new swap partition.

i've tried fdisk.
created a new partition.
changed it's id from 83 (linux ext2) to 82 (linux swap)
but on booting the swap is not found.
what's the way forward?
