Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've got an external firewire drive that I want to have automatically mounted on boot. There are 3 partitions on it 2 ntfs & one of them is a FAT32 partition which I want mounted r+w so I can share it with windows.
All this is normally default when I install Mandriva but I've just installed SuSE 10 (which bar this problem is great!) and I just can't mount the thing. Even the KDE GUI tools for mounting won't work. The only way I can mount it is by leaving it unplugged, and then connecting it when the system is fully booted. It recognizes it fine then.
Here's a copy of my fstab. Can anyone make the necessary changes so I can paste it in, also tell me what you've done so I know next time.
