It seems that I need to enable FTP support to be able to mount my USB-HDD. when FTP is enabled, my HDD is detected, FTP is started, etc.etc. When I switch-off FTP support, my HDD is not detected at all, or at least /dev/discs is not created.
My question: is there a way to mount my USB-HDD without enabling FTP support? I just want a webserver to run on this HDD, and don't want FTP switched on. Ofcourse I can kill stupid-ftpd, but that sounds rather strange. Start ftp and kill it in the same boot sequence. So any help on mounting a USB-HDD without needing to start stupid-ftpd is welcome!
