      Hi Mike,

      That is what i tried (doing it manually) and it didnt work.

      However after searching a little, am i supposed to be editing the mount.sh with my slugos usb pen inserted, or the mount.sh file without my usb pen inserted?

      You say that automount will be removed, does this mean theres another way of achieving what i require?

      I dont really see how it can be a useful tool without the automounting of drives, as i wouldnt want to log in and mount stuff everytime i turn it on. I know the idea is to leave it on all the time but thats not possible at the moment.
