I noticed on a fresh FC3 install that the swap partition entry in
/etc/fstab is referenced by a "LABEL=SWAP-sda7" entry instead of a device.
It appears that the swap partition is labeled similar to the way file
systems are labeled.
I understand fully about the reason and method for labeling file
system partitions and referring to the labels in /etc/fstab to make
booting more robust, especially with SCSI devices that tend to move
around as hardware changes.
How do you label a swap partition? Is there a tool for labeling swap
