The partitions auto mount on the server. I've confounded things a little here in that I'd already done:
But in any case, here's the print out of ls -l /media
$ sudo mkdir /media/extras /media/syncatron
I'm guessing the 'extras_' and 'syncatron_' directories are the auto mount points.
boehj@sutti:~$ ls -l /media
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-12-14 23:36 cdrom
drwxrwxrwx 5 boehj boehj 4096 2011-02-28 10:49 data
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2011-04-16 20:21 extras
drwxrwxr-x 1 99 99 9 2011-04-16 19:54 extras_
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2011-04-16 20:21 syncatron
drwxrwxr-t 1 root 80 33 2011-04-15 20:19 syncatron_
I also updated my /etc/fstab (haven't saved it yet) but I wonder about the options. Here are the relevant bits:
I've done noauto because I don't want these (particularly 'syncatron') mounting unless I specifically tell them to. Are there any other options I should be putting here. Options that perhaps pertain to permissions.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0

Bah, to be honest, this HFS+ stuff is making me woozy. I'd feel much more comfortable just formatting one partition ('extras') as ext4 and being done with it.
I'm sorry this has become so unwieldy. I think I've wasted a lot of your time. Once I've reformatted 'extras' as ext4 I'll report back and perhaps, if you still have the patience, you can teach me how to write a rsync script.
Thanks again for your help.
