    to unmount stuff use the
    Code:
    umount
    command

    Though the shutdown process should unmount any mounted filesystems for you.
    Also could you explain this more

    Personally i would use these lines:

    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    dependin on fs on the usb stick choose relevant one.
    Code:
    #/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2 
    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2

    What does this mean "dependin on fs on the usb stick choose relevant one"

    Yes, and usually it's FAT32.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    reiserfs is what my external hardrive is formatted now it was orginally ext 3 so i'll use this one.

    /dev/hda2 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
    /dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0

    Also where would the mount point be for these two be and also would the external drive be hooked up before booting into Suse Linux.
    Also when I switch to Windows XP I could I unattach because the filesystem isn't recoginzed by it.

    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 vfat noauto,users 0 0
