Quite possible! Here is my fstab: 

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options>                  <dump>
# <pass>
/dev/sda8       /             ext2   defaults,errors=remount-ro 0      1
/dev/sda6       none          swap   sw                         0      0
proc            /proc         proc   defaults                   0      0
/dev/sda7 /usr/src ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sdb5 /usr ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda5 /bp vfat defaults 0 2

So sda7 *does* get mounted before sdb5. Should I change it or will I 
screw up anything with such a screwy partitioning scheme?
