Another way - But this is wrong info!

Doh. Apple added this /Volumes thing after the public beta.

After some experimentation I managed to mount a removeable scsi Jaz drive at /Jaz despite OSX wanting it automount it at /Volumes/Jaz.

First, with the disk automounted I got the drive details (/dev/disk1s4) using df. Next I unmounted the disk using umount /Volumes/Jaz I then fed a fstab line into NetInfoManager like this (as root):

echo "/dev/disk1s4 /Jaz hfs rw 1 1" | niload -m fstab .
(note the '.' at the end of that line)

Running NetInfoManager I can see the new mount entry under the "mounts" section.

I created an empty dir called /Jaz with "mkdir /Jaz" and then mounted the disk there with "mount /Jaz".

I hope that gives you some useful pointers, though using a symlink might be a lot less hassle.
