I wonder if anyone can duplicate the problem by creating a partition and having it mounted in fstab by volume label and see if it appears twice. If you list it in fstab by /dev/sdXX and HAL announces it as /dev/sdXX then it will only appear once, but if it is listed in fstab as LABEL=XXXX and HAL announces it as /dev/sdXX then it would be listed as twice. I believe /boot, /, LABEL=boot and LABEL=root, are typically ignored either in Gnome or HAL or both, so those won't dup. -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.
