Hmm, good idea, I didn't think of UUID's.

Reading the manpage, it seems setup-storage even supports this, even
though I had to think a bit on how and where to configure it.

Think I found it now (fstabkey:uuid in the "disk_config" line for the
whole disk).

I wonder, if I don't have to use device name anywhere, (disk_config
disk1, fstabkey:uuid), if and how I then can circumvent of having to do
something like

"vg data hda5"


Anyway, first I gonna try the uuid stuff these days and report if it
