Re: fdisk and labels

And just for completeness, usb thumbdrives can be labeled with mtools'
mlabel command.  Doing so has the nice property of giving a meaningful
name to the mount point when the thumbdrive is plugged into f9 and
perhaps earlier.  Ditto for CD's and DVD's labeled with "mkisofs -V
label".
