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

    Re: Auto Mounting


    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.
