I don't think I've ever used a volume label of a filesystem
for anything. I'm not sure what you want with a volume
label, Sir Thetargos.

I inteded to mount the volume as the root and boot partitions are mounted in fstab:

LABEL=/root / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/archivo /archivo ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/rikers /rikers ext3 defaults 1 2 <--This is the partition whose device file is /dev/hda5 I wan to mount it like this and not:
/dev/hda5 /rikers exit defaults 1 2 <--This is how I mount it right now.


Call me purist, but having that /dev/hda5 etc, etc, reminds me of the windows days. Anyway just as it is works fine, I just wanted to see if the above is possible. Not that the traditional way did not work.

gotcha. i didn't think the label was of any use.
that way, you could move things around, and as long
as you kept the volume label the same, you wouldn't
have to edit fstab.
i don't know when it happened years ago, but after using
linux for a while, when i see c: i think, they mean hda1.
when i first used linux and would see hda1, i would think,
they mean c:
c: is such a jumpy definition. it means the active partition
that you booted from, unless you're booting NT . . .
hda1 stays hda1. it makes me feel more solid, unless
i boot some raid kernel or some kernel that redefines
the off-motherboard ide card as the main card, from
the option in kernel config- boot off-board ide controllers
first.

Whansard:
Do you really still use Red Hat 6.2? Personally it has been one of the best Red Hats I've used

yes it is 6.2, but it has little of the original files left in it.
i use the old kde it has in it, because it's really fast now.
but, i have 2 newer versions of kde in it, that i have scripts
to start when i want. probably the init and libc are about
all else thats original. i picked it because that was the
most common rpm that i was seeing on the web at the
time when i was always trying to download software.
i've tried to upgrade it a few times, but so much stuff always gets messed up, that i end up restoring my
backup. i also liked that the freebsd, netbsd, and
openbsd that i have all have a redhat 6.2 compatibility
package, so i could run software from my redhat in
the bsd's. i've still got all that stuff on my computer, but
i don't ever boot them. and i can't ever get all my old
software that i wont give up, working in a newer linux.
