cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab_origionalversionincaseImessup
look, for example, at my automounted Mandrake partitions.
/dev/hdb6 /MDrakeUser auto auto,user,exec 0 0
now look at my floppy line
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0
find the line with what you want to mount, and change the noauto to auto.
KDE will remember what applications you have running when you exit. So, if you have OpenOffice, Mozilla, etc running when you exit, they will get restarted when you log in. Before I shut down, I just got into the habit of closing apps, or just doing
shutdown -h now
when I couldn't be bothered. Doesn't go throught the KDE save desktop part. :-)
