Yes, I just took a closer look at my fstab file, and now I see that only
the drives not being identified with UUIDs are prefaced with the sdan
identifiers. My bad... Thanks for correcting me, I'm always ready to
learn. 8-) the only partition using a UUID to identify it on my system,
is the Ubuntu root/boot partition, and all of my NTFS partitions are
using the dev/sda method.
