You're absolutely right. Looking now at df my boot drive is /dev/disk2s12

Unmount a volume at startup

Many thanks for this tip guys it works well.

After reading through this thread and looking at the 'man diskutil' commands in Terminal I've now modified the script slightly by using 'eject' rather than 'unmountDisk'. This works better for me as It now also stops my LaCie FW drive's fan (which is noisier than my G4 MDD!)

Many thanks for all the info.

g00ner.
