+ <title>Installation using Persistent Device names</title>
+ <para>
+ The installer uses per default persistent device names. If you plan to
+ add additional storage devices to your system after the OS
+ installation, we strongly recommend to use persistent device names for
+ all storage devices.
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ To switch an already installed system to using persistent
+ device names, enter the YaST2 partitioner. For each partition,
+ select "Edit" and go to the "FStab Options" dialog. Any mount
+ option except "Device name" provide you persistent devicenames.
+ In addition, rerun the boot loader module in YaST
+ to switch the bootloader to using the persistent device name
+ also. Just start the module and select "Finish" to write the new
+ proposed configuration to disk. This needs to be done before
+ adding new storage devices.
