do you get sth like
Adding Swap: xxxxxxk Swap-space (priority -1) ?

this would be a kernel message. i don't know how redhat does it, but you 
could hack the kernel (again?), or set the console log level with 
dmesg -n <1-7> 
klogd -c <1-7>
at this time in the boot process you propably want to use dmesg. (you need to
use it before the swapon command!)

hope i have understood you ;)
