mounting drives - adding to fstab


Greetings,

I've just gone back to SuSE and two of the drive partition, while they're seen, aren't being mounted and need to be added to fstab. What's the best way to handle this?

Thanks,

Scott

As root edit /etc/fstab and add the two drives. Save the file and then reboot your machine.

Cheers.

You don't really need to reboot. After editing fstab, mount the partitions manually.

Thereafter, when you boot/reboot, they'll be there.

Are you wanting to auto mount these partitions?
