What would you like to do?
fstab to keep my dead Main drive inside my '07 iMac from mounting at boot time and dragging the whole system down. I copy-and-pasted this from https://gist.github.com/threebytesfull/968327 because GitHub kept through a 500 error every time I'd try to clone that gist. Props to the original author of this solution.

#
# You can find the volume UUID in Disk Utility. Select the volume on the left
# and then File->Get Info. See "Universal Unique Identifier".
#
# Options used below:
# ro for readonly (can be omitted)
# noauto to prevent auto-mount
# noatime to skip writing last access times (performance thing, optional)
#
# Remember to set the filesystem type (hfs, ntfs, etc) too
