Problem with automatically mount USB devices into an unusual place on SUSE 10.2


I am new to Linux and hence I am not sure if this is possible.
I am trying to mount my USB storage devices /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 to /iamshared/usb
I used the mount command in the terminal, but every time I reboot the devices unmount, resulting in me having to sign in as root, and mount the devices again.
Is there a way to automatically mount the devices

Run 'man fstab' . It will describe you format of /etc/fstab. Everything that is put there without option 'noauto' is mounted at boot.

also, if you add the "users" append in the fstab line, you don't have to log in as root.

Do you know about su? (At first I didn't know about that, and once I learned it made using the root account a lot easier).

Would you like a sample fstab to look at?
