I started to use a USB thumbdrive on a box with RH9. I can mount it with
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash
and it works. I added the line:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/flash auto noauto,users,kudzu 0 0
to my /etc/fstab. Everything is OK until I disconnect and reconnect the drive. At the moment when the drive is connected, the mount point (/mnt/flash) disappear together with the line I added to fstab.
What the hell is going on here??? this is not windoze!!!
If anyone could give me a clue ... so I can stay more or less sane ...
