trying to get the UUID of the disk (which was only 8 chars long as
it's VFAT formatted), and then trying to mount it by the UUID, or the
label. Neither worked, and I noticed that much of the web-material
about this was referenced to the Debian dist...
I'm thinking that perhaps Debian might be a better bet?
However before I start all over again, can anyone confirm whether UUID
support only works for ext2/3 and if it's supported under VFAT how I
would get a 'proper' UUID string?
Thanks again guys,
