Of course you have to replace the mountpoint with the folder you want the partition to be mounted at. Because you haven't said which file-system is in use, I have set the file-system to auto in this example, you can replace it with the name of the actual file-system.
A couple of notes for noobs out there.
(1) I recommend the following line instead in order for more seemless integration for you if you're in Ubuntu like me:
UUID=4f9500d8-6d01-491b-9f92-532bf3d613dc /media/mydrive auto defaults 0 0
(Copy and paste the entire line--you may have to scroll right--by selecting whole line, right clicking, and then copy.)
More advanced users...scoff away. At *all* of the above. Heh.
(2) To edit your /etc/fstab file, you will need to have administrative/root privileges. There are a billion posts out about this. Or just ask. Then you'll do the following in a terminal:
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
(3) Be sure to save when you edit that file.
(4) Easiest way for changes to /etc/fstab to occur: Restart.
(5) After restart, your hard drive will be mounted and the files for your hard drive will be at:
(6) If you're in Ubuntu, you can find the drive under Places (VERY top). It will be one of the listings.
Hope that helps some noobs out there.
