hiding "/dev/mapper" from df (LVM2 issue)

Hi there,

I just configured LVM2 on my system so that 2 of my disks be used in a volume group vgTools, with a logical volume named .. lvol0 (I did not use the -n parameters with lvcreate).

My current df -h output is something like :

[grajea01@oslo ~]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 3.0G 402M 2.4G 15% /
/dev/hda1 99M 27M 68M 29% /boot
/dev/shm 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda2 7.3G 4.5G 2.5G 65% /usr
/dev/hda5 1.5G 775M 638M 55% /var
/dev/hda7 1012M 34M 927M 4% /tmp
/dev/hda8 7.5G 494M 7.0G 7% /usr/local
/dev/hda9 1023M 179M 844M 18% /home
/dev/hda10 15G 5.2G 9.6G 35% /sharepoint
8.5G 272K 8.5G 1% /mnt/tools

I don't like that filesystem notation, /dev/mapper/vgTools-lvol0 . From what I've seen at some other places that it really shoud read as:

/dev/vgTools/lvol0 8.5G 272K 8.5G 1% /mnt/tools

What's wrong here ?
