using getty to do remote login?

Actually I have two questions.

1)  How do I set up getty to do remote login?  My modem is
a 14.4 Zoom which works fine with Kermit (it's on Com3)
but the man pages for getty are cryptic and I have as yet
had no success.

2)  How do I get linux to automatically use my swap partition?
As it is now, I always have to switch to root and type
swapon /dev/hda3 before it will use my swap, and that's not
practical for other users who don't have the root password.
