finding partition from LABEL

Hi,

I have the following line in my /etc/fstab file:

LABEL=/oracle/datafile /oracle/datafiles ext3 defaults 1 2

I commented the line out because at boot it complained of errors and put me in the recovery console. It's an important server so I don't want it to be offline whilst I fix the partition. My problem is that I can't figure out what partition the LABEL points to and I've searched high and low on google. There must be a command or something that can do this but I just can't find it.

#findfs LABEL=label
or
#findfs UUID=uuid
