Hmm, some little while ago I replied to one of your posts detailing how
you could have done all of that, quite easily.

Yours has been the only one that I've seen generate labels like that
(gibberish characters).  All the ones I've seen come with labels
something like the mount points (e.g. /home as the label, and swap-hda7
as a swap label).

How did you initially partition your drive?  Did you let the installer
do it for you?  Did you do it by hand?  With what program?

Whether the labels are there or not doesn't matter, as far as booting is
concerned.  (The labels are written to the partitions.)  But what you
put in your grub.conf and /etc/fstab can matter for your issue.
Changing the fstab entries back to device names isn't really "removing
the labels," and it isn't necessary to remove them.

I was tempted to reply in HTML, just so I could write "LABELS!" in 54
point text...
