    its possible to create SWAP partition after Linux Installation but i think you have created Four Primary Partitions already.
    its not possible to create more than 4 Primary Partitions. Create an Extended Partition and create Logical Partition in it. format logical partition as SWAP. there is no limit for the number of Logical Partitions in a harddisk.
