So fstab is OK? Last time I tried to install when I saw USB showing up as /dev/sda it ended up empty.

Re: Gmail

I used to use a notifier, but nowadays I just look at the Gmail tab that I always have open and pinned (I have "Unread message icon" enabled in labs) this way I get notifications on any computer I am logged in.

You can do the same...
