How to avoid the “S to Skip” message on boot in Ubuntu

On he odd occasions I boot up my Muthbuntu system without a disk in it that is in the fstab, I am asked on the boot screen what to do with this missing disk. Press M to manually mount or S to skip. Well this is not practical on a headless system; I end up having to go kind a keyboard and monitor. Drag them over and plus them in to resolve this issue. To avoind this add the nobootwait option to the mounts you want not be skipped if not present. I added it to all but the slash mount. Happy days!
