Cool Hi All, new Slackware enthusiast from Asia!

Hi All,

I'm new Slackware Enthusiast from Asia.

Slackware rocks!

Well, actually it is pretty tough to install, more works to be done rather than just click next and next.

However, google is our friend, haha. I managed to get everything working.
1. Wireless (I had fwcutter and b43-firmware installed, using Slackbuilds)
2. I had wineHQ installed (also using SlackBuilds)
3. I had QQ working by installing Linux QQ
4. I managed to get flash-player to play the youtube.
5. Managed to get the sound of flash-player on youtube working by running alsaconf.

Everything works fine. But I just have small little curiosity, I try to google it and didn't find any information, on my etc/fstab it shows:
/dev/sda4 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda2 /usr ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/sda3 /home ext4 defaults 1 2
#/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/SD1 auto noauto,owner,users,rw,sync,exec 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

I wonder why there is # on /dev/cdrom (become #/dev/cdrom) ?

On other hand, when I run df, it shows:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 19228276 3416480 14835048 19% /
/dev/sda2 38448304 6282168 30213036 18% /usr
/dev/sda3 94195848 2646632 86764256 3% /home
tmpfs 504696 0 504696 0% /dev/shm

I wonder why /dev/sda1 suddenly change to /dev/root ?
I didn't remember I changed it.

These are just small annoyance that I do not find the answer on the net.

Any Expert could give a little enlightenment ?

Thanks for all the Linux Gurus out there.
