Please, wait a minute!
I have a temporarily changing system. i.e. sometimes I have my little LPS240
attached and sometimes not. If this change is going to be made, this is going
to invalidate my /etc/fstab as my internal drive, which is unit 6 will some-
times be sd0 and sometimes sd1... :-(
I don't think this is a good idea...

On the other hand, I don't want to attach the LPS240S permanently as it is 
quite loud (it's in an external disk drive case only which doesn't give good
noise absorption...).
