moving mount points in fstab

Hi guys,

I am using Fedora Core 3 and I have a usb memory stick, which mounts automatically in /media/USBDISK. When I change fstab to point to /media/usbstick, and create the folder, etc... everything is ok. But when I reboot and insert the memory stick again, FC3 still creates /media/USBDISK and not /media/usbstick.

The reason for this is because I have created two bash script files that rsync certain files:
HDD at work >> usb memory stick and also
usb memory stick >> HDD at home

and can also use these two scripts to to rsync:
HDD at home >> usb memory stick and also
usb memory stickk >> HDD at work

Could somebody please tell me how can I change permatelly the usb memory stick mount point? (I have grep'ed /etc/* for "USBDISK" but there is nowhere else other than fstab)

You need to change udev's settings, not fstab's

See this thread from yesterday for more information
