Mount second hdd Centos 5.2


Hello world!

I've just installed Centos 5.2 and I have 2 SATA hdd's.

I want to permanently mount my second hdd, refered as /dev/sda, in my filesystem under the direcory /mnt/backup

I know that I have to use the mount command and then edit /etc/fstab file.

But I am not pretty sure and I don't want to mess everything.

Thank you in advance for your help.

As a reference I attach the output of my fstab file. (more /etc/fstab)

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/var /var ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/tmp /tmp ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

Once you've done that, "mount -a" will mount it for you

Permanemtly mounting a remote windows folder

Hi, I have the following mount to a remote windows folder (to ship backups for inclusion under the windows based backup system)

# mount -t cifs -o username=administrator,password=xxx //10.0.0.61/users /mnt/pbxbackup

I can acess the file system at /mnt/pbxbackup after this.

How do I make this permanent so if the system reboots etc it will make this connection again? I have tried editing fstab - but I am not sure how to deal with the username password parameters?

Shane
