Hi, running Debian Squeeze without any issues for rather a long time.  However recently something has changed.  When I start my system now, my big USB HDD is not mounted, and thus lots of things like my mail server/web server and other stuff all fall over.

I am using the wait4usbdisks.sh script, and that's worked well, but something had changed in either the kernel or debian base that's made it less than efficient (I have seen it work a couple of boots, but it's far from robust and 9/10 times it does not work anymore).

IS there a better, more bullet-proof way of delaying the init until the HDD has spun up?  What solutions are others using?

I think you should reinstall the drivers for the USB HDD first of all. If that doesn't work, then you should try replacing the USB cable.
