10.5: Set a FireWire drive's mount point
Authored by: groundswells on Jun 04, '08 05:55:10AM

The easiest application of this hint for me is mounting an external drive to a folder inside your Movies folder. When you use FrontRow (which allows you to browse your "Movies" folder), you'll have access to your movies when that drive is connected. There are other cool/crazy ideas you could use this hint on like overmounting your home directory with a firewire drive loaded with the default home directory for troubleshooting/testing. This is really a nice hint. Just another tool from the unix style toolbox that makes OSX so nice.
