Telnet in to the Tivo & run mkswap /dev/hda8 (I think... may just be mkswap /dev/hda but the mkswap man pages seem to indicate it's the former... only one will work, so there's no harm if you get it wrong... just an error message).
Then you'll run swapon -a to activate it. And you can check /proc/swaps to make sure it's working: cat /proc/swaps
Edit: mkswap on the Tivo will only initialize the first 127 megs of swap space. You'll need a mkswap that can write v1 headers in order to initialize the entire 150 megs you allocated, and a kernel that can utilize v1 swap partitions.
