crashing swap space or swap command ?

having problems making a swap space to exist.

fdisk -l shows
/dev/cciss/c0d0p3 1281 2260 3998400 82 Linux swap / Solaris

swapon -s shows no swap file or any result. so, i recreated one

mkswap -c /dev/cciss/c0d0p3

results shows
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 4094357 kB
no label, UUID=e9bc47c4-ca56-4b85-aacb-3b06ec37d847

and reconfirms free command, which shows 0 swap size:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 514856 474636 40220 0 2656 13828
-/+ buffers/cache: 458152 56704
Swap: 0 0 0

swapon -s still shows null output.
top shows:
Swap: 0k total, 0k used

appreciate any leads.

After mkswap, you must give command "swapon /dev/cciss/c0d0p3" to start using the swap space. Add the definition of the swap partition to your /etc/fstab to enable it automatically at boot.
