I just teted it again.
And yes, the CF card is mounted where fstab points to, that's right:
/dev/hda1 is mounted to /mnt/cf in fstab.
And that's correct: IF there is a CF in the slot during boot, it will be /dev/hda.
If there is no CF in the slot, the MD will be /dev/hda. But in that case, /dev/hda1 is NOT mounted to /mnt/cf (and it cannot, because it is a swap partition here
BUT OTOH I have a "swapon /dev/hda1" in an rc script, and that works well if no CF is inserted during boot. However, if there is a CF, this command fails.
So there IS a difference here, dependent on if there is a CF inserted during boot.
MD is /dev/hda if NO CF during boot
MD is /dev/hdc if CF during boot.
Is this not the case on your 1.1.0beta3 installations??
