Question I mounted it


Greetings:

Ok..I mounted my internal hdd
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/hdd --------> working properly

BUT I want it to automatically mount every bootup. Pls consider and correct my config:

/dev/sdb1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1

Is this correct?

this setting mount the folder as your '/' directory, are you sure you want this? It will conflic with your existing OS. if you want to mount some where else please change to this.
/dev/sdb1 /data reiserfs defaults 1 1 (Make sure /data exist)

Congratulations on the progress you've made. Assuming you want to mount the new partition to that same mountpoint when you boot (ie, /mnt/hdd) then you want to modify the "/" in your new fstab entry (eg, the second parameter) to become "/mnt/hdd". (You are already mounting /sdev/sda2 to /, so you can't also mount /dev/sdb1 to / at the same time.) Making that change should give you the results you desire. You are doing a great job!!
