    Here is my problem. Whenever I start up in mac osx, the boot camp volume that has windows vista on it automounts. I always unmount it but then when i restart, the volume is right there again. I was wondering if there was any way to disable it from automounting because I know I can just change which os i want to start up in with the "option" button. If there is a process, could someone be really specific cause I'm still quite new to the mac.


    Thank you in advance as always =]

    I'm gonna bump this because I also need this answer. I checked in fstab and fstab.hs and they are both blank. I really dont want my windows partition mounting because I'll rarely use it. It's just kind of annoying. Let me know what you guys can come up with. I'm on 10.6.2 btw
