Using linuxconf to add nfs volumes - I added two.
on exit and apply changes, the deamon reported that "/", "/usr" and "/var"
had changed mountpoints, and did I want to remount them.

No, of course NOT!
the /etc/fstab file showed
all "/dev/sda*" had been replaced with "LABEL=/<mount point>"

/dev/sda1       /               ext2    defaults        1       1
#was LABEL=/	/	ext2	defaults	1 1
# and so on.
/dev/sda5       /usr            ext2    defaults        1       2
/dev/sda7       /var            ext2    defaults        1       2
/dev/sda8       /export         ext2    defaults        1       2
/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/sda6       swap            swap    defaults        0       0
# nfs mounts 
mudpuddle.cs.wustl.edu:/fowl    /fowl   nfs

Comment 1 Dale Lovelace 2000-08-23 16:30:27 EDT
Linuxconf didn't replace your /etc/fstab with the "label=" stuff, the install of
Pinstripe labels disks that way. Linuxconf didn't understand the "label=" stuff
and that is why it asked you to remount them (you can remount /, /usr and /var
by the way, won't hurt a thing). Linuxconf is fixed now in-house.
Comment 2 Mr. Berkley Shands 2000-08-25 11:07:57 EDT
you are correct. I see the label= stuff before linuxconf.
I like the new organization and tabs stuff.
