Mounting ext3 partition


I was wondering if some one could please tell me how to mount a ext3 partition in Ubuntu.
I have only ever used Mandrake and that was easy. I can't figure how how to do it with gnome.

On the command prompt:

Code:
% sudo su
(type password)
# mkdir mountpoint
# mount -t ext3 /dev/device mountpoint
to unmount it

Code:
# umount mountpoint

I don't mean to be a pain... but what if I want to add it to my fstab file so it mounts on boot up?

Something like this works

Code:
/dev/device  /mount/point  ext3  defaults 0 0
If you want a normal user to have permission to read and write, instead of "defaults" do:
Code:
uid=(userid)
(userid) can be found by typing "id" on the command line
