resizing swap space
Your install C.D. should have a rescue option which will allow you to mount and unmount your install.
Another option by the way, if swap performance is not a key issue here, is to just use a swap file somewhere on your drive to add to your swap space.
There is a lot of documentation on that.

I have RHEL 5.2 installed an need to resize the swap space. I followed
the default installation so the entire drive is allocated to the root
filesystem and some space was reserved for swap and for /boot.
I now need to shrink the root filesystem, but must unmount it first. The
problem is I can't unmount the root filesystem. So, I think I must boot
from a CD, then modify the size of the filesystem.
I checked out a few liveCDs but non mentioned anything about containing
the LVM tools or fsprogs utilities. Does anyone know which livecd or
how I can resize the root filesystem?
