dosfslabel seems to assign a label all right but it still does not change the "name." Well it did assign a label, now I've broken something?

   [root box6 bobg]# dosfslabel /dev/sdc1

My daughter changed one on her Mac without much effort. I did not see what she did. She changed it to FD3, thought she told it "fd3" but ... I have been trying to change it to lower case "fd3."

I have not been able to change it no matter what I tried. And gparted tells me I've messed something up with it! After messing with gparted for a bit it tells me Partition and File System are "unallocated" whatever that means, but it sounds bad!

None of this is a serious problem, I guess I can reformat it ext2 and might eventually do that anyway. Just thought I should be able to do anything she can do with the Mac.
