Hi Dave:
You missed the point of Rainers reply.  It is supposed to be CAPITOL letters 
for label (LABEL).  

You should spellcheck and proofread your posts.  What is a gurb.conf file? 
That should be grub.conf.  I'm not trying to put you down, but a spelling 
mistake in a file can cause unexpected results and it's best to check all 
your work.

3069?  What kernel is that from?  Was that a 2.4 kernel?

I would recommend not updating with anything but the stock Fedora repos until 
the system is working properly, then add things like livna or dags.  This way 
you will at least know what the problem is related to.

You might also want to check the archives relevant to the 64 bit 2111 kernel.  
I seem to recall seeing some problems about that.
