Mounting Windows drive automatically in Ubuntu


Hi
I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu.
How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

You'll need to add an entry to the file /etc/fstab
