But that can require several re-boots to get it right - and this machine is SLOOOOOOOOOW. I share out the USB drives and I'd like to just go 'use that' once I've got stuff sorted so when we get one of our regular power cuts I dont have to edit via SSH, or if fstab is borked pull the damn thing out of the cupboard and wire it up to monitor etc.What's a UUID? I seem to survive without them...

Hm. What's a reboot? I seem to survive without them.Really - you don't need a reboot when editing /etc/fstab... If you do, something in your system is broken. The noauto parameter tells the system to not try to mount it at boot time and the user option lets ordinary users do the mount without becoming root...
I seem to remember there was a simple way of doing it - in my dreams perhaps ..
I think my way is simple, but then I've been doing it that way for more years than I care to remember...
