Would like partition mounted at startup


Hi I would like my sd9 & sd10 partitions mounted when I start my Mepis Linux.
Here is my fstab data, what do I need to change?

# Pluggable devices are handled by uDev, they are not in fstab
/dev/sda7 / ext3 defaults,noatime 1 1
/dev/sda5 swap swap sw,pri=1 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devmode=0666 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
# Dynamic entries below, identified by 'users' option
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2 ext3 noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/sda6 /mnt/sda6 vfat,ext3,ext2,reiserfs noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/sda8 /mnt/sda8 vfat,ext3,ext2,reiserfs noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/sda9 /mnt/sda9 vfat,ext3,ext2,reiserfs noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/sda10 /mnt/sda10 vfat,ext3,ext2,reiserfs noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom iso9660,udf noauto,users,exec,ro 0 0

assuming you have a hard drive install of mepis, what are the file systems of partition 9 and 10

eg vfat, ntfs, ext2, ext3, xfs, reiserfs?

Replace noauto with auto. Read man fstab and man mount.

You will have to change "noauto" to "auto" and should specify in the third column the file system you are using for each (like aus9 was about to suggest ).

To learn a little bit more about it check "man mount". Most linux partitions will be ok with just "defaults" as the fourth column.

EDIT: I typing rate is too slow.
