Will try to use this to boot; however, I'd prefer the labels over the UUID, wish there was an easy way to set it.

I prefer UUIDs.

Much mroe likely to have the same label on multiple drives than the same

For example, CentOS 4.3 went crazy in such case, being unable to mount anything but root IIRC.
