http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I am running Fedora 12 i686. I have three hard drives in my computer with multiple partitions. Three of these partitions are mounted in /mnt by fstab. sdc10, sdb11, sdc1. all are EXT3. About four of every five startups they are mounted. One drive is ATA the other two are SATA and when they are not mounted the drive order is changed the ATA drive which should be sdc is reported by gparted as sda and the SATA drives sda and sdb. Any idea how to remedy this problem? Thanks Terry Here is my fstab: # # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sat Nov 21 10:57:50 2009 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk' # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info # UUID=2f93d3a5-0cef-4822-b39a-d7197acd7280 / ext3 defaults 1 1 UUID=576e66a3-13c7-427a-b23a-04e8f3b6c2fd /home ext3 defaults 1 2 #UUID=ff0ff244-feaf-4746-9dcc-d1f92771d7c5 swap swap defaults 0 0 UUID=70eaf543-f2bf-418c-94d3-05fc2494b212 swap swap defaults 0 0 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sdb11 /mnt/sdb11 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sda10 /mnt/sda10 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sda8 /mnt/sda8 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sda9 /mnt/sda9 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sdb9 /mnt/sdb9 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sdb10 /mnt/sdb10 ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1 ext3 defaults 0 0 (HowTos)
