Following are the relevant entries in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc-bak vfat
noauto,users,gid=users,umask=0002,utf8=true 0 0

(Note the 'noauto' declaration in each entry.)

Upon booting, hdb12 has not been mounted automatically, which is the
desired behavior. However, hdc1 *is* mounting automatically.

Try changing your 1 2 at the end of the fstab file to 0 0.

Hi Joseph,

The last line actually does end in 0 0

It turns out gnome-volume-manager was automounting hdc1 each time I logged into GNOME. Someone pointed me to the program 'gnome-volume-properties' (it normally resides under Desktop>Preferences in GNOME) and unchecked all the automounting functions listed there. That solved my problem, but when I have time I'm going to try narrowing it down to the specific function.

Thank you very much for your response!



Sorry about that. I was looking at the wrong drive.
