[CentOS] directory /dev/disk/by-label

I am trying to create a CF card that boots 686 CentOS 6.3
On boot I get a message about /dev/disk/by-label/\x2f   where \x2f is "/"
cannot be found.

Adding rdshell to the boot line and booting up sure enough
the /dev/disk directory does not exist.

What "creates" that early on in the boot process?

My CF card was changed from UUID to LABEL. So I edited grub.conf and make
root=LABEL=/
like the OLD 5.X days.
Clearly I have missed something else when swithing back to a LABEL method.
I want to use LABEL because I want to duplicate cards.

Thanks,

Jerry
