This would allow me to create a symlink to point to a fixed location rather than having the drive living as a block device in /dev/xxx. The module is no longer in systemsettings. Is there a gui front end for doing this now?

I'm a little confused by what you are asking.

Do you want to know how to mount a filesystem at boot so you can symlink
to the files contained on the hard drive, or do you want a method to
give the hard drive a customized device name in /dev.
