There is still a problem with the mount applet in VASM. When I attempt to use it to create a mount for /dev/hda1, the first stage correctly identifies the partition as HPFS/NTFS (its NTFS). However, after selecting the mount point, VASM identifies the partition as XFS, and will make the fstab entry on that basis. Which doesn't work very well, naturally...
I also notice that it gives me the option of mounting /dev/had3, which is the extended partition, which is, after all, only a container for logical partitions.
While its not really a bug, it would be useful if there were two options on the VASM sub-menus - one to go back to the previous menu, and one to exit VASM. It can be annoying having to step back through several levels of menu to exit.
