Some boot related tweaks... (GRUB, Video mode & mounting)
I wish to streamline the booting process of SimplyMEPIS 3.3.1 by:-
1. Setting the GRUB bootloader to place the 2.4 kernel version above the 2.6 (the 2.6 has serious difficulties with my USB mouse) on the bootlist.
2. Berfore Linux is uncompressed, it tells me that 'You have specified an undefined video mode number', and gives me a list from 0-6 or scan. I want to set it so that it knows that I always want selection 6, and doesnt need to ask me this.
3. I have 3 hard-drive partitions, hda1 (NTFS, Linux needs no access), hda2 (FAT32, Linux needs frequent access) and hda3 (Ex3 where Linux is kept), so when I boot into MEPIS hda3 is always mounted (obviously). Because I use hda2 so much, is it possible for MEPIS to automaticaly mount that on boot, to save me time?
