Hahaha, thanks! Had no idea that option existed. Should have read the man more carefully!

comment How Do I use autofs to map a USB drive by its ID?
I'm not attempting to argue your solution that it's the recommended way. My issue is that I'm getting the syntax wrong. In order to mount a usb drive by id using autofs, could you show me the proper way to configure the files given the information I've provided initially? I understand the concept generally when it's explained but implementing your suggestions seems to be going wrong somewhere.

Nils, not sure I follow you completely, though what you're saying sounds possible. In this case, how would you recommend accomplishing mounting the contents of the USB disk into the /MOUNT_FOLDER location? Also, am I using the wrong tool in autofs (is it recommended that I just use /etc/fstab instead, for example?)

comment GRUB on USB Drive — adding OSes
@Wodin: Essentially, yes. LiveCD (but with write ability since it will be on writeable media), with one unified bootloader for all the distros/tools I'll want.
