[linux-lvm] /etc/fstab and noauto

Greetings -- I successfully build a system where several
LVM volume groups correspond to external SCSI enclosures.
I often turn on the machine with those enclosures off,
but in order for that to happen, I have to comment out
their respective lines from /etc/fstab:
#/dev/black/black /black reiserfs noauto,defaults 1 2
#/dev/slick/data /slick reiserfs noauto,defaults 1 2
#/dev/quattro/span /span reiserfs noauto,defaults 1 2
If I leave them in active, and don't turn on the enclosures,
the system stops for repair. Does vgscan lok into /etc/fstab, and tries
to spin those drives for those groups even _regardless_ of noauto?
