Description Stig Hackvan 2000-01-29 03:38:12 UTC
the installer should label the partitions it creates.  it's a useful
convention that's also supported by cfdisk.

another thing this does is provide hints for the installer upon
re-installation...

example:


## stig/jato (pts/4) -- Fri Jan 28 -- 19:16:48 ##
## jato: /tmp >> mount | sed -n 's,\(/dev/hda.\) on \([^ ]*\) type
ext2.*,tune2fs -L \2 \1,p'
tune2fs -L / /dev/hda5
tune2fs -L /boot /dev/hda1
tune2fs -L /m2 /dev/hda6
tune2fs -L /m3 /dev/hda3


gets you:
