You should consider using BOTH swap partitions - if you don't need the

might help a little bit more... especially if you are low on ram.
If it's IDE it will likely only help if the two drives are on
different cables (ie hda and hdc or hda and hdd)
Just list them both in /etc/fstab and let linux choose which one to use when.
Better yet, assuming both hard drives are relatively close in
performance, use the priority=0 option for both.
That will make linux use them both simultaneously, spreading the load,
and potentially doubling swap performance.
