My system has three physical drives, and I find that if I want to reference partitions in colinux, then I can configure a partition as follows:


That works, but if I reboot windows, then I've seen Windows' hard disk numeric order change, and it may not work in the future.

For example, on a previous boot, that same partition appeared as:


...so referencing these partitions in this way doesn't reliably work, since windows can swap the disk numbers around from boot to boot.

How can I get it to work with ext3 and ntfs UUIDs ?


I find that cofs devices don't always work either...I've had the following mounting an NTFS partition on another drive from the one where the actual windows C: is found:


Any way of binding that to a UUID too?
