I'm not very familiar with the Precise startup & boot process (I'm using a custom DE, based mostly on Madbox 12.04), but I have heard that lots of processes run in parallel in order to speed things up. And from what comes across my screen (errors complaining "Mount point does not exist"), it looks like sometimes the system is trying to mount my wine partition or my backup partition (both of which are shared among multiple distros on the same machine) into my home partition before it actually mounts my home partition. With fstab like this, is that possible? And if it is, what do I do about it?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
