Dear Karl,

Thanks for your suggestions, but upon rereading my initial letter, you 
may notice the words "I made". The middle partition on my hard disk is 
where I have all my working files, which I choose to call data. It was 
not generated by Windows. I would appreciate your expanding a little on 
your comment "No kidding". Should I have known that laptop fstab 
readings are so different?
