Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hey mgonullu,

That's pretty slick.  I've always used the fstab file, which is a major problem if it can't find the devices on boot, causing me to have to boot in root mode and edit the file when that happens.

I read the link info, followed up with other references, and now I agree.  Dear Asker, the above answer is probably the best way to do this.  It works in SUSE no problem.  I'm adding this answer to my knowledgebase.
