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.

In additions to the "/dev/sdb1 you will need /mnt/sdb1 not mntsdb1. You also need your filesystem type and other entries so do as suggested and check man fstab. Reading over your first post, if the directory you created in the /mnt directory is called "drive", you will need to make your entry:
Phew! This last line gives me permenent access to sdb1, but I do not have write permision. Can anyone see what I should change?
Nothing in fstab. Check the permissions on /mnt/sdb1, by doing "ls -l /mnt/sdb1". Change it according to who you want to have access to it. If you want everyone and every group (dangerous, IMHO), do a "chmod 777 /mnt/sdb1".
