Tip: "im new and i need help" isn't a very helpful subject, "mounting slave drives on boot" would be much more useful.

I suggest you read the fstab man page (man fstab) and edit /etc/fstab

1) that's REALLY sad

2) you did it wrong anyway, you changed the title of the first post, not the thread title... for example:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=15414

nerrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Anyway... Yeah, no problem. First, have the other two drives been formated for FAT, ext2, ext3? I assume one of them is FAT since 98 is on there.

Also, which drives are which? Which is primary master, which primary slave, secondary master, secondary slave?

Cheers,

Check out

It has a section on editing your fstab file to mount Windows partitions at boot.
