/dev/ufs/Oak         /          ufs     rw,noatime     1     1
/dev/label/OakSwap   none       swap    sw             0     0

I think any of the other label schemes will also work.  If you don't
remember which label is which device id, then 'glabel status' will show
that, but you shouldn't need to.
