Description Ed McKenzie 2000-11-13 00:26:32 EST
A nice user interface enhancement would be having desktop icons making it
easier to access partitions not listed in /etc/fstab, f.e. partitions from
other Linux installations or from Windows.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2000-11-14 11:35:33 EST
The right enhancement here would be a "add partition to /etc/fstab" wizard or
something. In the meantime, just add these partitions to your /etc/fstab
with the "noauto" flag, so that they won't get mounted by default.

Not something planned to add in the near future.
