Apparently the output differs dependent on the last time you access the 

/dev/sdc2 146524356  10857020 135667336   8% /media/ieee1394disk_1
/dev/sdc1         0         0         0   -  /media/ieee1394disk_2
/dev/sdd1 292978112  51752448 241225664  18% /media/ieee1394disk
/dev/sdi1         0         0         0   -  /media/usbdisk

All of these are external drives.  /dev/ieee1394disk I unmounted and 
remounted and it is listed with a 'df' with no options.

Wierd thing is, ieee1394disk_1 and ieee1394disk_2 are on the same 
hardware, just different partitions.

Until later, Geoffrey
