Description Need Real Name 2000-08-03 15:25:29 EDT
In beta 5, upon completion of an "Everything" install, my /etc/fstab 
contains the following:

LABEL=/                 /                       ext2    defaults        1 1
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner    0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
/dev/hda1               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

The beginning of the first line should read /dev/hda2.

Linuxconf calls this an error as well.

I've duplicated this 3 times on two different machines. This did not 
happen with the previous two beta CDs.

Using the label is correct behavior.
