[CentOS] How to stop automount

I just put a USB hard drive into service, but find that unless the drive
is connected to my PC the machine won't boot and drops to a shell.
Below is the line I added to fstab. I thought that the option "noauto"
would prevent the machine from trying to mount the drive
/dev/sdb /usbdrive ext3 user,noauto,rw 0 2
What am I doing wrong? Any advice is welcome.
Yes indeed...the Hokey Pokey *is* what its all about!
