USB thumb drive possible addition to updfstab.conf.default?



This msg regards a 2 gb. memorex traveldrive. Device is working fine in FC2, but was not put into /etc/fstab automagically. O/S is fully yum-updated fedora core 2.

File:
/etc/updfstab.conf.default

Section:
 device flash {
    partition 1
...

Addition:
match   hd "Unknown Memorex TD 2B"

(rmmod usb_storage and reinsert)

Result: Works fine with usermount

Two remaining questions:

1) Should any of this be reported to bugzilla?

2) Are there recommended options to extend the life of these devices? For example, use a certain filesystem type or fstab settings to minimize write cycles to any given location or area?

Thanks,
John
