    i have successfully set up the swap and optware mountpoints in Fstab, but i want to set up an additional mountpoint for an external harddrive that will be connected to my router occassionally.

    The drive contains an ext3 partition named "download", and i want this partition point to /down (for the purposes of scripts, etc.). so i have added a new line to the FStab file, which looks like this now
    #device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass#
    LABEL=SWAP none swap sw 0 0
    LABEL=OPTWARE /opt ext2 rw,noatime 1 1
    LABEL=download /down ext3 rw,noatime 1 2
    however, the download drive still mounts to /tmp/mnt/download

    the fstab file has been saved in the nvram, so that part should be ok. i have added a 2 at the end of the line becuase i read that 1 should not be used for non-root filesystems. any idea what am i doing wrong?
