Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure if that is the problem I am having, I installed from a CD to an SATA harddrive. The USB drives I have are just for files I can't fit on the internal HD that I boot from. What my issue boils down to is whenever I plug in one of these drives, the automounter ignores the label on the first drive I attach, any subsequent drives work as I expect them to (using the label as a mount point). It doesn't matter which drive I attach, it always just uses /media/usb0 for the first. If I dismount it and then attach another, the 2nd drive gets the /media/usb0 mount point. If I then reattach the first drive, it gets mounted using the label. The automounter just acts "weird" with the first device I attach.
