i have 2 nfs exports on my linux file server: linuxBox:/backups & lB:/webfiles

since both are on the same server, they get dynamic mountpoints of /Volumes/linuxBox & /Volumes/linuxBox-1, and finder automajicklly munges them to /backups & /webfiles, unless of course i've mounted them in the reverse order, in which case i have no idea which is which...definitely a problem for scripting;-}

i assume the same would apply to multiple partitions on the same external drive.

needless 2 say, static mount points are a definite advantage...
