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.

and when I remove the drive, that line is almost immediately removed, as it should be.
The problem is that, after plugging in the drive and then clicking on the drive's icon, it's over 60 seconds before anything appears in the Konqueror file manager.
I believe the system is trying to find an EXT2 format drive, times out after 60 seconds, tries looking for a VFAT format, finds it, and all is well (note the order of the "fs=" line in fstab).
I think that line is written by drakupdate_fstab, but where does it get its info on what filesystem to look for on that particular device? If I could find the config file, perhaps I could change the order from ext2, vfat to vfat, ext2.
Any ideas on where I could look for a configuration file for this problem?
