it seams as you try to set /dev/hde3 (E!) as your swap partition, but
you're system is on hdf (F!). if both is right then aou have to do the
following:

edit /etc/fstab end correct the /dev/hde3 entry to /dev/hdf3

start fdisk (fdisk /dev/hdf) and change the type of partition 3 to 82.
(press "w" to exit).

now do:

mkswap /dev/hdf3 && swapon

ready!

best regards ...
