   i don't mount by ids, i mount by labels, but in looking
at the doc for lilo.conf i see that it should also be
possible to use UUIDs too.

No, UUIDs and LABELs cannot be used to specify a whole partitioned disk as the boot device because they are filesystem metadata. Whole partitioned disks are not present in /dev/disk/by-{label,uuid}/.
