Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

@schneidz: I was refering to your question about the usage of UUID, of course…
@myself: I was a whole third page late, not a whole second page late! I was tired…
@QueenZ: Based on what I see in the output of your mount execution, the problem indeed seems to be that the filesystem is Ext2 and not Ext3. Did you try to put “ext2” instead of “ext3” in the previously added line? To do that, open the file with “sudo kedit /etc/fstab” and change the filesystem type in the last line (see example above, I made the change).
In case of failure, you may want to also replace “relatime,errors=remount-ro” with “relatime”. The error= option is one I had no knowledge of, and it might be specific to ext3…

Update inode access times relative to modify or change
time. Access time is only updated if the previous access
time was earlier than the current modify or change time.
(Similar to noatime, but doesn't break mutt or other
applications that need to know if a file has been read
since the last time it was modified.)
I've used my system for a couple of years with "noatime" and had no problem (I don't use mutt). Now that "relatime" exists, I've switched to it. The whole idea behind these options (compared to defaults) is to write less often to disk and wear it less when you don't care when a file was last accessed.
