	I inserted this line (sourced mainly from mtab) between the swap and floppy entries :

UUID=47C6-4FAE    /media/EASTON    vfat  rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000    0    2

	- and that at least did no harm but when I switched off and rebooted I was still asked 
for the root password.  Presumably I have got something wrong, or missed something?  I am 
wondering in particular about those conditions - might there be something amiss there?

	But something is happening because if I boot without Easton then I get a message 
saying it cannot be found and asking whether I want to manual mount or to skip mounting - 
skip mounting boots normally and gives me the SATA systems drive.
