wrong hdaX thing as / in /etc/fstab but maybe not debian's fault

when i was preparing to ask something @ jack-dev-ml
found a weird thing going on with 2 debians on my PPC(iBookG4) machine
one is stable and another is unstable
stable is on hda6 and unstable is on hda5
but when doing df -h
both said


Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5             4.0G  750M  3.1G  20% /
tmpfs                 315M     0  315M   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M  108K  9.9M   2% /dev
tmpfs                 315M     0  315M   0% /dev/shm


Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5              3.2G   871M   2.2G  29% /
tmpfs                  330M      0   330M   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                    11M   111k    11M   2% /dev
tmpfs                  330M      0   330M   0% /dev/shm

less-ing the /etc/fstab of stable also tells me
that it is taking its / as hd5
but as can be seen above there
both version has its own size and yes they are working!!

i wonder if i edit this to make the stable's / to be hda6
it won't ever boot anymore

the DiskUtility of my OSX(10.3.9) creates
some sort of border kind of 140MB area
between each volumes(well yes, the border itself is also another volume)
which i don't find anything related to on the net
so when i installed linux
i combined those weird volumes and re-devided with fdisk
(but things for osx is left as is)

can someone teach me what is going on over here?
