There are a lot of pages that come up under this and similar questions, but 
this one had answers that worked for me.

With this, I created udev rules and a shell script (all should be explained in 
this page). On a new installation, I just copy these items (udev rules and 
shell script) from my secure storage location to these places, like so: 

udev rules
cp -r -v -f /media/<storage_location>/etc/udev/rules.d/52-usb-memory.rules -t /etc/udev/rules.d/

mount script
cp -r -v -f /media/<storage_location>/usr/local/sbin/ -t /usr/local/sbin/

After reboot, everything works like one expects, no surprises. 

lotsa luck
