OK,
  Let me see if I have this straight.

1.  The preferred technique is to have each partition use a label and
    use the labels in /etc/fstab.

2.  You can set the labels on most things during install.  For currently
    unlabled partitions, you can use:

    e2label <partition> [<label>]   on ext2/3
    mkswap -L <label> <partition>   on swap partitions
    dosfslabel  on vfat file systems (from (dosfstools) - yum install
dosfstools
    ntfslabel   on ntfs file systems (from (ntfsprogs)  - yum install
ntfsprogs

   (Need to identify what repository contains the two RPMs)
