Use of labels in grub.conf



Greetings;

This is a resend, from my home account, no idea how it was sent thru 
the work account, which of course bounced...

My old 233mhz P-II needs all the help it can get, so I was compiling a 
stripped down kernel.  But I couldn't boot to it (no initrd, just 
modules) using the root=LABEL=/ in the grub command line.

Fooled with it for several hours, then decided to use root=/dev/hda8 
(home of the / partition) instead.  Worked first time.

What is it that allows the default FC2T3 kernel to use labels while 
its booting, but when I duplicate the grub entry but with the newer 
vmlinuz name, I have to use root=/dev/hda8?

Or is this a real bug?
