You know, one thing I forgot to mention... Look at /etc/fstab... That should
give you some insight as to what is mounting where when you boot.
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1

/dev/hda3 /usr jfs defaults 0 2
/dev/hda4 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
