mounting a drive
Authored by: Anonymous on Dec 06, '00 05:14:24PM

I also tried to do this, and worked hard to try to get it to work.
The problem is that the mounting is controlled by autodiskmount. anyway, I could get the computer to mount a partition or disk to a specific dirctory, but the finder would not recognize it. I did this by editing the /System/Library/StartupItems/Disks/Disks file, and the /etc/hostconfig file. anyway, I couldn't get it to work so that the finder would recognize it. There must be a way; this is a pretty simple UNIX feature, and maybe in the final release there'll be something that'll make it easier, or perhaps someone else will figure out a hack.
