So, moving /library to the external disk in single user mode was no
problem. I see a bunch of files in /etc/usbmount.d Is that where I set
something up, or do I mess with /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf? Not sure
which way to proceed...a bit beyond my skill set. I'll happily follow
directions and write it up if one of you can point me to an example or
tell me what to do.

I take it that if /library is set up in usbmount, then it is redundant
in /etc/fstab?
