Mounting drives on bootup!


Can someone please tell me how to mount my Windows drives on bootup.

i know the commands to do it, but i want it to run automatically...


'mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/c'
'mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/d'
'mount /dev/hda6 /mnt/e'


Cheers, Stephen

Add lines to the /etc/fstab file. Ex:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c vfat umask=0,auto 0 0

The vfat is for FAT32, umask=0 sets permissions for Win drives since they don't support them, auto mounts on bootup.

Moved: Not LFS specific.

Add them to your /etc/fstab file to mount at boot time.
