    Disable windows partition automount


    How do I disable the automounting of the /windows/C partition when I log into my Linux box? I have added the option noauto to the /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab files but it still automounts. Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    You add the noauto option in your /etc/fstab like so
    Code:
    /dev/hdax /mount/point fstype noauto,other,options 0 0

    I have already done that in the /etc/fstab file along with the /etc/mtab file. It's not mounting when I load Linux, but it still shows up in the drive window.
