Mounting a FAT32 Partition


While installing Ubuntu, I forgot to mount my FAT32 partition. I think I have to type some commands into the console, but I don't know what. Its path is /dev/sda2.

Can someone help me?

Do you want to mount this temporarily, or permanently?

If you want to just quickly mount it, you would do something like:

sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/fat32

(You would need to make the /mnt/fat32 directory in that example.)

If you want it to be persistent, then you need to add it to /etc/fstab.

You would add something like:

Code:
/dev/sda2    /mnt/fat32    vfat    defaults    0    0
