Re: FC2 install/upgrade problem



Ok, so I've checked my three physical devices using e2label and found that two
are labeled "/" and one has a blank label.

Now, how do I know what values to put here for labels? Does it really matter to
anything? What possible dependencies could there be?

Thanks!
