I tend to complicate the simple. 
Two questions that I can't answer satisfactorily:
1) Presumably, I would have to copy the current contents of /boot 
which is mounted at sda3 to sda1 /boot1 at some point? If so, I 
suppose this is no big deal except, what's the sequence? Copy 
first, then relabel? (Pardon me if the answer is painfully 
obvious - There's still some unresolved confusion on my mind on 
the relationship between labels, file systems, and mount points)

2) I know that first was really about three questions, but, 
anyhow, what about Grub? When I reboot, are things going to just 
work? Don't I have to get some info into whatever is written into 
the MBR that grub.conf is now located at sda1/boot and not 
sda3/boot?
