RedHat 9.0 Auto mount


Hey everyone.....

I have recently installed RH9.0 switching from Mandrake 9.0.

I really do think Redhat looks & performs better.

Anyhow.. on to the point, I am currently having to mount my 3 Win FAT32 partitions everytime i log in to play MP3...

I've had a go at editing my FSTAB, at least the drives are manually mountable now. I hate the fact that RH doesn't automatically mount partitions...

What I want to know is... what is the EXACT code I need to put into my FSTAB so that my FAT 32 partitions (hda1, hda2 & hdb1) are auto mounted on boot!

Here is my current FSTAB..

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/C: auto noauto,owner,users 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/D: auto noauto,owner,users 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/E: auto noauto,owner,users 0 0

I look forward to your replies!

do you not think that that "noauto" thing might be slightly affecting things? remove it.

and of course sayign that redhat looks better than mandrake really doesn't make any sense, all down to the window manager you have...

LOL, you serious? I was on here before I installed RH9 to see the commands and stuff... one of the posts said that "noauto" ensured the disk would be mounted automatically... ffs!

I use KDE, the whole environment feels more polished than it does in Mandrake9.0.

Fonts looks better and well.. the menu's organised!

Pity there's not a decent control panel in RH9 tho, like the Mandrake Control Centre.

Ta anyhow.
