Question 1)

I have this alias that allows me to mount my windoze drive at /c:

 alias mdc='mount_ntfs /dev/ad1s1 /c'

It works fine.  I thought that I could automate the process further by
mounting /c at boot-up time, so I added this to fstab:

# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass#
/dev/ad1s1                  /c                  ntfs        rw                 
1           0

When using the built-in mount_ntfs you should really mount read-only.
Maybe using the options 'ro' and 'late' will help.

I changed the fstab options to 'ro' and /c still won't mount at startup.
This is not a big deal since I can get /c mounted via the alias; I'm just
trying to understand why it doesn't work.  I recall that on an old system
of mine I had fstab set up as you indicate and it worked fine.
