I believe the problem is simple really. fstab has the device listed as LABEL=misc, and HAL reports it as /dev/sdX, the Gnome file manager sees these as 2 separate devices and presents them as such. Find a way to have Gnome stop scanning the fstab file and have it rely completely on HAL, or have HAL ignore all devices listed in fstab. -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
