Creating new swap area without backup

Is it possible to create a new swap partition without having
to take backup of the harddisk ?  Does there exist tools to
do this ?

1. create an extra swap area


 Could somebody tell me how to create an extra swap area on SCO 3.2 v4.2

We had tried the following command for several times, yet always got the
error message like  :warning: alad: Poll command failed on drive ID=5
swap = no such device or address.

/etc/swap/ -a /dev/swap2 0 360000

Thanks in advance!
