A unique identifier.  Each partition should have a unique one (and it
probably will, unless you've done some cloning).  It allows you to
specify to use a particular partition, and it won't matter how it's
attached to the computer (dev/sda, sdb, USB, whatever), it'll be used.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
