Yes, exactly that's the purpose. In such a setting, da3 would
refer to a SCSI disk, and "home" is the label. It can - CAN! -
be mounted on the /home directory.

	# mount /dev/label/home /home

But of course, any other mountpoint is fine as well. The setting
in /etc/fstab will do the correct thing - if setup correctly. :-)
