Ok, this is driving me nuts...

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/tmp /tmp ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/home /data ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/home1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

As my fstab will tell you, my labels are kinda off..

I don't want my /data partition to be labeled as "/home" and my home partition labeled as "/home1" but i just don't know how to change the labels...please help. I only want to label my data partiton "data" or "/data", anything really but not "/home"...

I tried changing labels in konqueror but it just isn't as easy as that....
