I've just re-read Aaron's post and, yes, I didin't realize that he
meant that "-i" doesn't exist.

It doesn't exist in Ubuntu either when you run "man mlabel" or "mlabel --help".

It does however work on both Fedora and Ubuntu to pass an mlabel
command to a Linux device ("mlabel -i /dev/sdXY ...") as opposed to a
DOS-like device (for example: "echo 'drive z: file="/dev/sdXY"' >
~/.mtoolsrc; mlabel -z f: ...").
