I've installed Elyssa on my Toshiba laptop from a USB disk (CDROM is out of commission). I have a couple of issues I wanted to see if anyone could help me with:
1) Initially, I had trouble mounting the USB drive for writing. I messed around with the gconf-editor VFAT mounting options, to no avail. Finally I figured out the problem is with the fstab. But by the time I fixed FSTAB, the default mounting options in gconf were mangled beyond recognition. So now I can't mount USB disks, and probably can't mount anything else really.
So -- can anyone please point me to a full list of default mount options as appear in gconf-editor in a vanilla Elyssa install?
2) My Toshiba laptop won't go to sleep. I've read the lengthy thread here about Toshiba power problems... Any other advice? How can I make it sleep? Should I try another distro, or is this a config thing?
