Thanks. What does your grub.conf have for root= ...
and what does blkid produce? And what is fstab-sync?

# grub.conf generated by anaconda

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-55.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
/dev/hda5: LABEL="/1" UUID="2d474e87-2a32-42f3-b4c9-7914585fa707"
SEC_TYPE="ext3" TYPE="ext2"

I guess "/" isn't a legal label but "/1" is.

# /usr/sbin/fstab-sync
libhal.c 911 : Error sending msg: Service "org.freedesktop.Hal" does not exist

Hmm. We don't seem to have it on Fedora (6). Thanks. I managed to boot
my system with labels but the installer claims it can't find / despite
having just told me which partition was mounted on it. Sigh.
