Re: Removing Labels from fstab

When I upgraded from FC4 to F7, aside from dealing with the
renaming of the drive device files (I have both IDE and SATA
drives), I got some message that I interpreted to mean that
partition labeling was required, even after adjusting the
device names referenced in fstab to reflect the newly assigned
device names.  Only my root partition was labeled, so I had
to assign labels and modify the fstab to get everything else
mounted.

Upgrading to a new Fedora version will fail if /etc/fstab does
not use labels.  This is because a new version may change the
order in which devices are detected, thus making device names
no longer a reliable way to specify partitions.
