Don't know much about this but just in case anyone is interested the stuff
with LABEL= half worked.
Lilo doesn't seem to support anything but /dev/hdx for root or boot
Also mount is a bit dim and tries to mount them again, thinking they're
loopback file systems, this doesn't break anything but it generates errors
at boot time.
Finally there's no way to put a label on a swap partition so your swaps
will break even if your ext2s don't. Shame really, it'd be nice if the
distros adopted it, no more trying to remember whether /usr/local was hda14
