I wasn't sure - lol. I must look stupid now. I thought that changing anything in mtab wasn't permanent. I thought the system always overwrote mtab. I"ll try it out. Thanks DC.
/edit: i edited mtab. I umounted the sda1. I opened up mtab again. The reference to sda1 was gone.

udev decides where devices are mounted in most modern distros. Try looking at udev rules in /etc/udevd and see if yuo can add one for your disk. Warning - not as casual as it may sound, involves a bit of reading...

any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been unable to change the mount point of USB flash disk. Suse 10.1 automatically mounts to /media/usbdisk whenever I plug the thing in.

I know it's not quite what you want, but cant you just create a symlink to /media/usbdisk from where you need it?Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
