what entries to put into fstab for new hard disk?
I'm trying to install an extra hard disk on my system. I have it formatted and can mount it manually but can't work out the entry for fstab.
The hard disc is called /dev/hdb1 and is formatted as ext3.

A line in /etc/fstab to mount an ext3fs-formatted partition could look something like this:
