Hi
You just need to edit out the entries in /etc/fstab file.

Those entries aren't in fstab, that's why I said automounting, they are
other OS's etc. on my system. When I log in I have 21 partitions mounted
14 of which are not mentioned in fstab. I have 6 custom mounted
partitions that go to things like documents and Downloads etc. Some of
the parts are also like I said windows partitions from the OS's
operational partitions. There has to be some mechanism that detects and
just mounts everything connected to the system. It mounts them as if
they are removables off os /media. Any help would be appreciated I am
trying to evaluate this as a main desktop as I run from Unity and Gnome
3. ;)

thanks

Hi
Fire up the gconf-editor and browse to apps->nautilus->preferences you
can disable it here.
