1. The LABEL scheme was introduced in Anaconda 7.x for RHL 7.x.

2. I'd do a %post edit if I wanted to turn it off. I often use sed for
simple edits, and lay it out like this for ease of reading:

mv /etc/fstab /etc/fstab~
sed </etc/fstab~ >/etc/fstab \
  -e 's=this=that=g' \
  -e '/delme/d' \


Leave a blank line after the last.
