You can't use the LABEL=/ syntax unless you have an initrd.  However, you 
could look up the partition number of the root device in /etc/fstab and use 
that instead. (e.g. something like root=/dev/hda2).

That should work on FC2.

You'd need to build a new initrd using mkinitrd.  You can probably do without 
on FC2, however.
