Until opensuse 11 fstab use the device designations like /dev/sda1, now
since opensuse 11.1 the Device ID is the default (I know I can change
the default).

1. I am aware of the problems associated with the old device designation
mainly with the use of multiple drive, removal media changing locations

2. I though the future was going to be UUID

Q1. what are the benefits of using Device ID vs UUID?

Q2. is there a command line to get the device ID? Now I just open the
partitioner and I get it from there. I know the vol_id for example
provides the UUID. vol_id is not in the distro but blkid is and it
provides that info.

Q3. I use sata drives. I post the info of one drive first
partition /boot. fstab uses the ata device ID 1 why? what happens if you
use the scsi-SATA?
