Sorry, I had some problems with my mail away ago, so this one
slipped through...

These are reasonable suggestions, just it isn't clear when to
issue this message.  All the time?  Only if you are renumbering
a partitions that you didn't create in this session?

I think "all the time" is the only reasonable solution in general...

WRT "root", it's really hard to know what root really is.
(For exapmle, if you're using a rescue disk, then root is technically
the rescue disk)  So, I think a warning about lilo and fstab should
appear together.
