Re: fstab problem
I don't think this came up in the thread, but does it show up in dmesg
at all? It should theoritcally show up a the same time as all the
Posting relevant portion of dmesg below... It seems it finds hdc ok.
But maybe not in time before it runs fsck maybe?

It now works reliably with mount -a so I finally put a startup script
with nothing but mount -a in it.
Course, the problem with that is I can't let the system do a fsck on it
at boot up because the machine does't seem to see the drive util
so put a fsck in your script?
Umm, I can't do that because "I" didn't think of it! haha :)
