Re: Excluding devices from Linux startup

I have a Dual Boot Fedora Core 5/WinXP system with SATA HDD, IDE

everything is fine. I want to exclude this device from Linux so I can
leave it connected for when in WinXP. Is there a way to mark a device
to be excluded?


have you tried removing its reference from /etc/fstab? or just don't mount it.
