I used kedit and made  the change.  What was the benefit of using the 
';'?  It wasn't really an accident, other than I used that method of 
separating the code from the sentence.  Normally I would have done it 
like this 'kedit /etc/fstab'.  Did this change the mount point to 
'/media to /media/sda1'?
