    Default Need boot help with UUID's

    I followed a tutorial from this FAIL I CANT PASTE LINKS to setup my Asus eee.
    Works like a charm.

    But the thing is... look at this, this are the disks.
    sda windoze
    sdb usb stick i install with
    sdc1/2 installation

    But when i remove the usb, sdc becomes sdb and my boot panics.

    fstab changed from sdc to:
    UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxxxx /mnt/sdb1 ext3 (is this right?)
    (the same with sdb2 with the correct UUID)
    but what should i do with lilo?

    BT4 doesn't support booting with UUID.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Some excellent information on fstab
    one for ubuntu
    two *nix generic

    But basically it looks like the following.
    [Device] [Mount Point] [File_system] [Options] [dump] [fsck order]

    Also take a look at udev
