I just finished successfully upgrading my Hardy server to Lucid, 10.04, now when I boot the server it pauses for a "missing" drive and I have to hit the "S" key to skip or continue to wait. The drive is a 30gb 2.5" drive in an enclosure and is at times connected via USB. Here's the entry from /etc/fstab:

/dev/sdg1 /media/30gb auto users,gid=users,umask=0000,defaults


Will changing it to noauto prevent the system waiting for the drive to become available?

Thanks,
Bill
