Sometimes the copy from location is accessible too. :)

I just cloned two logical partitions to and from the only HD in the system and used

	tune2fs -U random -L <label>

on the clones. No bootloader is installed on either source or clone partitions. X won't run
and gpm isn't installed. I want to adjust their fstabs now, and boot either subsequently
through a configfile menu entry on a filesystem that was neither source nor destination in
the cloning processes. What do I do next?
