Re: fstab and removable usb drives

I'm experimenting with fstab lines to streamline mounting my removable
usb drives (flash and HDD). I have tried 'UUID-xxxx', 'LABEL-xxxx',
and '/dev/disk/by-label/xxxx', but with any of these the system refuses
to boot without manual intervention when the drive isn't attached (I am
told to hit <ctrl>-D and something about maintenance mode). This
occurs even when I set 'noauto'. Am I missing something, or are such
fstab lines really illegal for setups where the volume may not be
attached at boot?
Hm, noauto should skip it at boot. On one of my laptops I have this:
/dev/disk/by-id/xxxxxx /mnt/flash vfat user,noauto 0 0
Boots up just fine..
