Drive mounting wierdness


Today I thought I'd move my swap file to my second disk. My first is the 10gig that came with my g4 and my second is a 25gig I added. Both are on the ide interface, the second disk is where my classic installation currently resides.

A check in /etc/rc makes it looks like it will be a cinch. so I point my swapfile to /Volumes/Pollux/vm (Pollux being the name of my second drive).

However, it seems that Pollux doesn't get mounted that early. It seems that only the primary drive is mounted and Pollux gets mounted from /System/Library/StartupItems/disks, long into the boot process and not using any of the fstab files.

Anyone have any thoughts on forcing mouting sooner, or on moving my swap file over cleanly?
