    This is a common misconception. The LABEL magic is actually done by
    nash, which is part of RH's (and others) mkinitrd package. This also
    means that LABEL relies on having a working initrd.

    I have a short writeup of my understanding of how this works at
    http://www.livejournal.com/users/mulix/84768.html. All AFAIUI,
    corrections welcome.

    Cheers,
