fstab uuid

If you want to mount a drive using uuid just partition the drive and then run
vol_id -u /dev/sda1 (in karmic just do a ls -la /dev/disk/by-uuid)
sda1 is an example, you may have a different drive you are working on.
when you get the uuid you can create the entry in /etc/fstab.  You will need to reboot at least once after the drive has been partitioned.
