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.

Sure, you need to add it to /etc/fstab following the syntax that you use to mount it regularly... That might sound confusing, so:
mount -t vfat /dev/hdx /mnt/fat32 -o umask=000,rw
Then, something like this in /etc/fstab: /dev/hdx /mnt/fat32 vfat umask=000,auto,users,rw 0 0
hey, I don't want to hijack the thread, but this ones new, and this question might not be worth a new one.
I had something like
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/door vfat user,uid=500,gid=500 0 0
then I made a new user, and I wasn't getting the mount on startup,
so after a ton of investigating i found my new user was 501 !!!!
so I changed it to:
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/door vfat user,uid=501,gid=501 0 0
is what was suggested for our friend timmyk0 more general.
that is will it mount the windows partition for any and all users?
maybe someone could explain just what each part of that line does.
