Your /etc/fstab and /etc/grub.conf (really /boot/grub/grub.conf) should use LABELs to identify filesystems, not devices. RHEL 6 also allows you to specify filesystems by UUID. I don't know if that works in RHEL 5 or not. -- redhat-list mailing list unsubscribe mailto:redhat-list-request@xxxxxxxxxx?subject=unsubscribe https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/redhat-list
