I can never remember which device is what so when it comes to partitioning, etc. I'm afraid of messing up the wrong drive. Automounted devices like external drives don't seem to turn up in fstab. So each time I run into this I google and each time I seem to use a different method.
What's the most straightforward way to match up what device under /media/ is in /dev/ independent of linux distribution? (And I'm aware /media/ is probably a distro-dependent variable itself)
