LABEL=/1 vs LABEL=/ in linux !!


Dear Friends ,

I have to configure "Oracle Ent Linux 5" in different two server .After installing the server ,I observer that the grub loader entry are different like :

>Machine 1:
>=========
>title Enterprise Linux (2.6.18-8.el5)
> root (hd0,2)
> kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ >rhgb quiet
> initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-8.el5.img



>Machine 2:
============
> title Enterprise Linux (2.6.18-8.el5)
> root (hd0,0)
> kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5 ro >root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
> initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-8.el5.img


Here , I don't understand the difference between 'LABEL=/1' and 'LABEL=/' .

Would anybody plz help me to find out this difference !!!

Google could have found this easily:
Code:
This label is normally written to the partition so that you know exactly
which partition you're mounting. It's possible that with SCSI drives
your drives will get renumbered if a drive fails in the middle of the
list. You use the e2label command to see and changel the label.
And PLEASE spell out your words.
