Hello; I've two installations of fedora 22 on sd cards. I'd like to boot the first and mount the second to copy parts /home to the booted image. Problem is both are labeled fedora00. Any suggestions?

It shouldn't matter what the SD card is labeled. If you use Files (nautilus) you should see the "second", mounted card as a different item.

If you run lsblk you will see that your sdax that you boot from has unique ID, something like luks-4b868039-4020-4d52-b336-f184bf0a0662, and the mounted sd drive has a different one.

lsblk will also tell you the mount point of the second drive. So, you could use the terminal to copy files and folders: something like cp /home/whateve/file /mnt/whereever-sd-card-is-mounted/home/ (You may want to use --recursive. Check cp --help for more details)
