Description Radu Cornea 2000-08-02 15:12:09 EDT
I have installed pinstripe twice and it keeps adding my primary Linux 
partition with LABEL=/ for device file in /etc/fstab instead of /dev/hda6.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-02 15:54:17 EDT
If you are doing a new install then an /etc/fstab will be created using labels
instead of the actual mount device
name. This makes it possible to properly boot when, for example, SCSI drives are
added or removed to the
chain and device names change.

If /dev/hda6 is mounted as your '/' mount point then this is the correct
behaviour. You can always hand edit it
to say /dev/hda6 instead if you feel more comfortable with that.  Using labels
is going to be the default on all
new installations.
