10.3: A fix for local drives not mounting until user login
Authored by: crop on Jun 06, '06 01:12:54PM
It still works for me however, under 10.4.6...
Note that the xml plist syntax has changed to :

  <key>AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
Instead of :

  <key>AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin</key><true />

10.3: A fix for local drives not mounting until user login

I guess the correct way for changing the value in autodiskmount.plist is:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/autodiskmount AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin -bool TRUE

At least if your system is 10.4...
