Interesting.. my habits seem very old then :-).

A long time after setting up my CentOS6, I decided to create a
partition in extended area for my personal data, and to automount it at

This is done in fstab with:
  /dev/sda8 /storage/data    ext4    noatime,nodiratime  0 0
(see how I rely on sda, silly me!)

I grabbed the UUID from `lshal` and replaced it in fstab:
  UUID=005374e2_5c18_437d_84d8_8069868fe54e   ext4    noatime,nodiratime  0 0

.. no luck, it doesn't automount at boot. I think I'll have to
investigate or get another brain update.
