Put it in a USB2 housing.
Then it doesn't matter - FC5 doesn't use fstab when mounting a USB disk
(well, I haven't tried connected at boot). It doesn't use the LABEL

Mounts just fine - even if another disk with that LABEL exists -
allowing you to do all the recovery you want.

Yes, I've done this.
