I searched for a fstab file and it doesn't exist. What I have learned so far is that the file will need to be manually created. That isn't much of a problem. I did find a how to, sorta, for what I want to try out. For now I have both the ATA and SATA drives running to see if I have system crashes or a lockup after the box is called out of sleep. If all works well then I'll proceed with moving directories to partitions on the SATA drive. 

Sounds like fun to me
