Re: how to understand this boot option?

Hi,
 My machine has Fedora Core 1 installed and its grub.conf is like this,

default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/12 ide=nodma rhgb
    initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img

It is really hard for me to interprete "root=LABEL=/12 ".

Normally what I see is like, "root=/dev/hda1 LABEL=/" which makes sense to me. But the above is hard to read.

What is the value of "root" and "LABEL"? What "/12" mean?

Thanks.

are there multiple partitions? udev will set labels such as /1 and /2 for different / partitions to differentiate them, i think.
