I created the ext3 filesystem on both and mounted them just fine
under /disk1 and /disk2.

Yesterday I had to reboot the system to apply some patches and found those
external hard disks wrongly mounted when the system came back to life:

/dev/sdb1 480719088 96188532 360111356 22% /disk2 <-- this
should be /disk1
/dev/sdc1 480719088 252211016 204088872 56% /disk1 <-- this
should be /disk2

Any idea why this happens??

My USB disks are also mounted in a random order, I guess that's just the way
it is...

However, you can give the filesystems a label and then they will always get
mounted with that name (here: /media/mylabel ).

I have no entry in fstab for my USB-disks.
