To determine drive's mount location, use the dmesg
command as root. dmesg outputs a lot of information; you may have to hunt through it to find what you need.
Here's the portion of dmesg regarding my external USB drive. It tells me that the system sees the drive as drive sdb
. My Ubuntu auto-mounts it, but, if I were going to mount it manually, I could type mount /dev/sdb.
Putting it my fstab is a litte more involved, but Google will turn up a lot of help for that.
