As it stands, /media/disk doesn't exist until I plug in the external disk.
That is what yast chose as a mount point when I formatted it (it had ntfs to
begin with). Is what you are saying to create a permanent directory called
<name> under the /media directory? Confused.

My main concern is that the mount point will always be the same every time I
plug it in. In my case /media/disk Or will it change depending upon what else
is plugged in? I need to write a script to rsync to it and so need to have a
fixed mount point.

Cheers, Steve.
