A friend found the answer to this for me on a couple of passes through
OS-X's 'help'. For the record:
1. From the Finder choose Connect to Server from the Go menu.
[Check - been there]
2. Connect to the server, login, and select the volume.
3. Open System Preferences and click Login Items.
[OK - we'll see]
4. Click Add and locate the server in the Recent Servers folder in your
home Library folder.
[??? we'll see]
All clear? Well, it probably will be when I try it.
OS-X seems to have lots of possibilities, but then obvious things (to a
*nix user) seem to have been made difficult for no apparent reason.
Several variants of /etc/fstab.* exist, all internally commented as being
obsolete. Apple's web-site help specifies using [non-existent]
'/etc/fstab' on the other hand. #8-P)X
I guess I better kill my Mac OS-X thread now, as OT. Thanks very much for
the contributions, however.
