just continue the installation of linux. When the installation asks which partition it has to format and use as swap, only select the linux-swap partition.

make 2 primary partitions, one for soilaris, one for linux. then make your linux swap as logical partitions in a extended partition. You will then use the primary of type 82 as Solaris partition, adn the locical (/dev/hda5) as linux swap.
btw, install lilo not in the MBR but in the first sector of root disk, so you´Äll be able to choose between linux and solaris by using the solaris boot menu...
