Can't help with the other issues, but the "root" part is for the system
"/" partition. So whichever partition on hda it is, that's the one you
put. i.e. it'd be "root=/dev/hda2" not just "root=/dev/hda".
Label is just a name put on the partitions, it could be anything (you
get to choose the name, almost freeform). You can find out what's the
label for /dev/hda2 by this command:
You can change the label by writing the new one on the end.
e.g. e2label /dev/hda2 systemroot
It's handy if you move drives about, you can mount them by labels
without having to work out if they're hda1 or hdb2. But a bastard if
you have installs with the same labels on different drives. I've taken
to naming my drives with a texta (e.g. fred), then relabelling the
e.g. fredboot, fredsysroot, or fred1, fred2
(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
