10.4: Change a disk's mount point
Authored by: macshome on Aug 12, '05 09:13:07AM

It's just not installed by default anymore. fstab worked fine in Jaguar and Panther in multi-boot mode. I've used it several times when setting up failover clusters. The main thing to remember is that you had to use the disk name as defined for the partition, not the traditional disk number as you would on other *NIX. Mac OS X has dynamic disk mounting and the disk number might change from boot to boot.

AFAIK it works fine in Tiger as well, but I've not tested it yet.

Breaking my server to save yours.
