[Server-devel] automount external HD

I am using XS-on -XO1 version 0.6.

I want to use an external USB hard drive and mount it as /library at
boot time. I have added a line in /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1   /library    ext3   defaults   0  0

However, this won't mount at boot time. I have to unplug and replug
the drive to mount it, and then it automounts as /mnt/usb0

df -h will show /dev/sda1 mounted twice. Once as /mnt/usb0 and once as /library

Any ideas?
