So in lion I've been using the fstab file to prevent mounting of certain drives at boot. I could have swore they disabled fstab am I mistaken?
Any closure on this? I'm at the same place. I created /private/etc/fstab (based on some thread indicating that was where Lion would look for fstab) and populated it the following lines:nzalog said:So in lion I've been using the fstab file to prevent mounting of certain drives at boot.

Spaces are fine, and I use them with the \040 escape sequence to hide my NTFS partitions from OS X. I'll try just the hfs instead of the hfsplus, which I copied over from my Ubuntu fstab. Thanks for the reply.arpetwe said:Personally, I do NOT use drives with spaces in the names on my system so I don't know if the \040 works in OS X.
