That's a good point. It depends on what you call "a problem" for other
mount points. If sda1 is mounted first, the new devices will be mounted
below /media on sda1. If sda1 is mounted later, those devices which were
mounted before sda1 are on /media on the root device (sdb1). However
these devices will not be visible any longer after sda1 is mounted. This
situation is certainly not wanted but the mount operation wouldn't fail.
Anyway, the only time the mount operation would fail is when there is no
appropriate directory for the new device at mount time.
