Script editing fstab. That way if I mess up I learn the hardway...

Only thing left is to tidy up the scripts and create one for creating samba shares. I must say I'm really loving bash!

Total of 3 scripts and I can have a fresh install setup nearly the way I want.

@jordan31 Bourne-family shells like bash are definitely great for quickly banging out simple stuff but, compared to a modern scripting language like Python, they can get hairy very quickly.

(I'm not a fan of using `trap` to ensure temporary files get cleaned up no matter how the script exits, for example.)

You'll probably want mywiki.wooledge.org/BashFAQ at some point.
