manual mount - external usb hdd (ubuntu)
I am running the ubuntu linux OS in a vmware workstation within the windows xp OS. I have disabled the automatic mounting of my usb external hdd by some vmware processes at windows startup as it was causing my whole system to come to a standstill for about 20 minutes (note: This has only caused the external hdd to not be advance mounted at starup for ubuntu within the vmware workstation environment; The external hdd works grand within the win xp environment at all times). So, im wondering if there is any way in which I can manually setup and mount my usb external hdd in ubuntu?
(Any other suggestions also will be helpful)
Thank you to everyone, in advance, for reading/replying to my query.
