Re: second hard disk on Thecus N2100

Also I am concerned that if I change to uuid and the hard disk goes defect I can not change to another hard disk.

In that case, instead of using UUID, label your disk (using tune2fs or whatever)
and change fstab to mount by label, something like this:

tune2fs -L MyRootFS /dev/sda1
(assuming your root partition is /dev/sda1 and it's ext2 or ext3)

Then mount it something like this in FSTAB:
LABEL=MyRootFS  /  ext3  defaults,errors=remount-ro  0  1
(Just like the web page says, but use LABEL= instead of UUID=)

I haven't had to do it on my N2100 (it had 2 drives from the start) but
I used to do just this on my NSLU2 and it worked a treat.
