Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

uuid - DCE compatible Universally Unique Identifier library
The UUID library is used to generate unique identifiers for objects that may be accessible beyond the local system. This
library generates UUIDs compatible with those created by the Open Software Foundation (OSF) Distributed Computing Environ-
ment (DCE) utility uuidgen.
The UUIDs generated by this library can be reasonably expected to be unique within a system, and unique across all sys-
tems. They could be used, for instance, to generate unique HTTP cookies across multiple web servers without communication
between the servers, and without fear of a name clash.

libuuid is part of the util-linux package since version 2.15.1 and is available from ftp://ftp.ker-
uuid_clear(3), uuid_compare(3), uuid_copy(3), uuid_generate(3), uuid_is_null(3), uuid_parse(3), uuid_time(3),
util-linux May 2009 UUID(3)
This way you will have a 'UUID' for each. Try: 'ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid' to get identifiers. Then change your '/etc/fstab' to reflect the disk identification;
ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid
