I thought that 'disk label' is written on the partition disk
as part of the 'Boot Block'. Disk label, of course, is optional.
As you may know 'disk partition' has three (3) parts,
1. Boot Block
2. Inode-List or 'Data Structure' Block
3. Data storage Block.

Adding a new hard drive to an existing system... OK!
Adding an entry to /etc/fstab in the form of:
/dev/hdb /mnt/storage foo bar etc and so on
then using e2label to be able to use a LABEL to refer to a hdd.
LABEL=/storage /storage ext3 defaults 1 2
Somewhere some files must get modified by the 'e2label' command,
can anyone tell me which files?
What exactly happens when I use e2label?
