Rename Partition


Is there any way to safely rename a partition on RH 7.2? The Partition already has like 4GB of contents. I'm not sure if this is at all possible. Thanks.

What is the partition you want to "rename"? I believe you can rename a mount point and make appropriate adjustments in /etc/fstab to reflect the changes.
